Diesel fumes were bad at times, depending on the wind direction. Otherwise, the ride was very pleasant. The scenery was lovely.

Very enjoyable-worth the trip! Easy access for everyone and kids would really like it. If the day is nice, try to sit in the outside car for a great view.

A trip in an open railcar, if you desire, to the small, old town of Mineral where they have a lake with many trout and picnic tables. You may layover and picnic if you desire and return to Elbe on the next run.

We had a great time on the Santa Train at Christmas. It was a spectacular adventure with the little ones. An amazing Santa, snacks and a great ride!

This is a good activity if you have kids with you. In fact, the train was full of parents and their small children. My husband and I are both 50+ and we found it a bit boring for us. Our time could have been spent better elsewhere.
