It was a great experience for me. I had never had a train ride before and I really enjoyed it. I rode in the open car and got to see all fall trees and it was wonderful. I recommend visit the terminal shops.

While the fall colors were a little suppressed this year, the scenery was still beautiful and the locomotives inspiring.

I took the 4 hour ride in October. It’s beautiful during the changing of the leaves. You will enjoy it I’m sure.

We were told not to move from car to car. Our third car had a restroom. Ask in the station before you board. The staff was very friendly and will accommodate you if they understand the need.
