What People Are Saying

Randall Moring

Lots of fun. The steam train was awesome. I just wish the ride had been a little longer. But it was great. Everyone watching the train waves. The locals honk, it’s loads of fun and a lesson in bygone history. They do veterans discounts too!

Amir Virani

This train trip was 2 1/2 hours long and it was lots of fun. We took the Sunday brunch train that departed 10am. Coffee and breakfast was included and bar drinks were extra. Overall we had a great time. I would recommend it to anyone.

James Conachen

This was fun. Fantastic Bloody Marys. The brunch was very good with plenty to eat. The dining and bar cars are really nice. It was fun having two open cars to view the countryside. Everything was clean and the other passengers were friendly and polite.
