Very enjoyable and beautiful. It was fun to take a step back in history. On the ride you see the landscape as it could have looked and then definitely present day scenes! There's a little museum there. Also, the railroad offers a large variety of rides.

My husband and I love to ride on old trains and were looking forward to this ride in the little town of Walkersville about 15 minutes north of Frederick, MD. The conductor was very outgoing and cheerful as we waited for the ride. On the train, the PA system was so bad that we really couldn't understand 90% of the narrative. So we missed all the information about the train and the areas we were passing through. Since there are no bathrooms on the train you have to use the Porto Potties near the museum - which were so gross - I almost threw up. OMG - someone please clean them!!

One of my wifes and I first dates as railroad buffs was on this railroad in 2010. we fell in love with it from day 1. When we decided to get married in September of last year we chose wsrr . The price, location The caterer of th dinner train was to good to pass up. Brooke, the organizer of the wedding from the railroad who we worked with for the months leading up to the wedding was beyond spectacular to work with! She came up with ideas for pictures in the park. No hidden costs Everything is up front. They can even provide you with a piano player for the reception in the dining car which we chose that added the perfect touch for our small uniqu wedding . Our pics are posted on the wssrr fb under oct last year. If you want a small unique fun wedding this is the place to have it

Save your money..we spent 65 dollars for a dirty train, dirty seats that looked like they had just been dusted off that morning, that smelled like mold, and scenery of the back of peoples yards, weeds and the highway. My son talked to santa, whose elf..who was not dressed up by the way, proceeded to give him a bendable $1 reindeer --no music, no singing, just heaters plugged up to make sure everyone did not freeze to death, and scented candles to mask the smell....The hour we spend driving was not worth it...save your money and go to the National Harbor! And go to the bathroom first or you and your children will be forced to the porta potty!

We found this gem about two years ago, and every trip there has been pure joy, for the children and adults. The people there are fantastic!! We are going to see Santa again this 2013 Christmas season, (will report back). I know its going to be a blast!!
