I thought it was a little silly when my husband made reservations for us to board the Hocking Valley Railroad "Robbery Train" which runs only twice a year. I guess 499 people thought otherwise, because the train was filled to capacity with adults and children. Everybody was in an excited and chatty mood, and I couldn't understand a word that was being said about the sights we passed.
The "real action" took place halfway on the trip back. We had been warned beforehand and received counterfeit banknotes to hand out to the robbers. The children had also be armed with - small - water pistols for protection.
When the "robbers" finally attacked it was on a big scale. I counted 15-20 horses and riders). Everything went according to plan, and a good time was had by all.
One caveat: We were told to be there 30 minutes early, but that was not enough if you wanted to make sure you could sit together with 10 family members or so.
