“Traveling Back in Time”

SAM Shortline Excursion Train
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Originally booked this excursion thinking that only my 3 year old grand daughter would enjoy it. Boy-was I surprised! We boarded this particular Train excursion in Cordele Georgia and rode to Americus and Plains. We had layovers in both cities and were able to eat and shop. That said the Train itself is remarkable. Most cars are from around the 1940's. We rode the Premium Car and had snacks and free beverages. They also have a Coach and a Luxury car. They also have one car devoted to sandwich lunches and gift store. Prices vary depending on the excursion. My Grand Daughter was wide awake the entire trip and had a blast. So Did I!
