The Steam train is fabulous. The Mill tour is educational and fun. We had a nice lunch at the Mill. The train robbery was so cool. Friendly helpful people from start to finish. Most enjoyable day.

This is a quaint little piece of history. Good displays of train history and reproductions of local railway history.

We did this trip which was the special one for Fathers Day (which was a sell out) and we paid the extra for a cab ride which was fantastic and I highly recommend it. The 'robbery' was great fun (although maybe not as well acted...More

A genuine experience of time past in the steam RR era. Townsfolk are obviously supportive, given the railside "surprises" en route to the sawmill.

I personally did not take the Father’s day train but it was on Sunday June 21st and next year father’s day lands on Sunday June 19th so I would take a guess and say that would be the day. Check out their web site for all... More
