We went on an overcast day, so a little chilly. A ride on a hot day would be nice too. The cars are very clean, lots of room, knowledgeable guides. Like most tourist trains, the train goes out for so far, and then comes back on the same track, so you aren't seeing anything different on the return trip. Tourist info and clean public restrooms at the train station. Parking at the public lot on a recent Saturday was $10, but you could walk to the historical sites and restaurants from there.
