My husband surprised me with the train ride and dinner. Unique experience. Four course dinner catered by Golden Corral. Food was good scenery was great and the ride was fun. Definitely worth a try book in advance. Dinner train only offered on Saturday nights

My sister and I decided to go on the train ride at the last minute, we just walked by. We were glad we did. It was very enjoyable. Good narration of sites, clear view of everything. Would like to see in fall.

Excellent trip on a cool day. Had a good time conversing with a couple from South Bend, IN. Reasonably priced with comfortable accommodations. Didn't sound very interesting when wife suggested we go, but had a good time.

There is nothing like a train ride through the mountains. It takes you back to a time when things moved at a slower pace. For two hours, there is only conversation and enjoying the scenery going by. We are looking forward to coming back in...More

It was nice to take a step back in time, see the views and the rain made for some great water falling from the rocks.
