This is the first time we have done a wine tasting themed ride. We have done the very fun Polar Express excursion for the kids in the past, but not an alcohol ride. The ride itself was a little disappointing because the train basically took...More

Spent about an hour and a half on this train. It was cool. Reasonable price for the tickets. Something out of the ordinary to do with the kids. Recommend.

The train is an excellent tool when biking the towpath trail. We always park/get our bike ride in first and catch the train at one of the hubs/stations on the line. Bikes get loaded on the train and it takes you back to the station...More

Not impressed at all. First of all, the 3-hour train ride advertised in brochures is NOT including stops. It's actually nearly a FOUR-HOUR ride, and for a 19-year old, a 15-year old, and my husband and me, it was excruciatingly too long. It's not a...More

Yes you can go round trip. There are many stops along the way and the train stays at each apx. :10-15 minutes. As a result, the trip can be very long (4 hours?) the stop in Peninsula is the most interesting in my opinion... More

You heard right. The knowledgeable conductor did say they will, after 4days above 85*f, close the dome car.. There is no air conditioning.
