My 3 year old grandson is train crazy. He LOVED it and I loved watching him love it. It was really enjoyable through and through. Beautiful scenic ride along the river. We were able to sit anywhere we wanted to in the train. We selected the caboose and were able to hang out with the conductor. At the end of the ride they invited us to the engine and explained about how trains ran. All of the people involved were obviously train enthusiasts and seemed delighted to show off "their" train

We visited Kiski Railroad during their "North Pole Express" event, Saturday, December 8, 2012. It wasn't worth the drive- even if it was free and next door; though we traveled almost two hours one way. Our children were ignored by a filthy, (drunk?) Santa- not such a jolly elf. The railroad was overbooked and under staffed- those that were there were uninformed and very rude! The staff were selling tickets with no regard or knowledge of how many passengers the train held, or how many tickets they sold. All guests, including handicapped and children were forced to wait over an hour in the rain, then compete for a seat on the train. The train itself runs through an area that include run down buildings, garbage packed backyards- nothing "scenic" about the ride. There were no Christmas lights or holiday scenery to try and cover up the area. The "North Pole" was a stick in the mud- literally, a post that read, "North Pole." I wouldn't return if it were FREE, but at $10/person, it was truly ludicrous! We thought it was something special- rather than going to the typical "Mall Santa." (We ended up going there anyway, since KJR was such a BUST!) If I could deduct rating stars, I would. Go elsewhere!! Beware!
