We took the afternoon train ride in Early July. The views might have been better, but there were so many trees that were close to the track they blocked a lot. There is a running narrative on the ride out, but our car's speakers weren't working that day. No AC, but the windows open to get some air on hot days. They also have a dinner ride. We did not take it, but did sample the meal they serve at HyVee catering. It was delicious!

I bboked the dinner train for my husband's birthday. The food was wonderful, the staff was very nice, and the train ride was great. Plan on doing it again.

Our best tips are the Dinner Train. Food is catered by a local store deli, and is always good. You may bring your own wine for a $5 corking fee, which I like. The scenery is pretty good, with the trip across the high bridge spectacular. And trains are always interesting. A new museum has just opened, and has a lot of memorabilia.
