“Nice spring trip”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Have rode the Catskills Mountain RR twice. Once in the Spring and once in the Fall. Both were very pleasant trips. The Fall trip is the best. We rode before the hurricane damage, I hope they get the the balance of the track fixed, it really is a nice ride.

“A good ride for a train buff”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is a must for a train buff but only pleasant for others. It is a short train ride through some nice scenery. If you have mobility issues this is a good way to experince the catskills as it will get you much closer then a car.

Open air car or passenger car as you choose. Strangers do not exist on this ride as it is a shared, fun experience.

“Columbus Day Weekend!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

What a wonderful way to relax and really appreciate the fall foliage that the Catskills has to offer. I only wish that the ride was longer. Had a nice time without the kids.........

“$12.00 SHOT”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

If you have $12.00 per person that you want to waste ride the foliage special.
1/2 half hour at best and the sights are great. DOWNED TREES, DOWNED TREES AND A GLIMPSE OF THE THE ESOPUS STREAM.
Can only sucker you in once.
Only my 2 cents and that's waht is was worth!!!!!!!!!
