Fantastic, historic, great value and lots of fun. Enthusiastic and caring volunteers highly recommend this tri. Definalty recommend to 10 mn drive after/before the ride to see the rain drive over the bridge on the Thompson river.

Took the family and grand parents on the train. Great views of the valley, creeks and rivers. Fantastic job by all the volunteers to maintain this railway. Awesome way to learn the history of Walhalla.
