Went with a group and got the up front train with nice seats, table, wine and sandwiches. Dylan did a nice job keeping us entertained and serving. Not bumpy or loud, will not get "car sick" and if you have not done it, do it.

We rode The Tygart Flyer a few years ago and liked it so much we had to go back. It's a lovely ride to the High Falls of Cheat, where you disembark and go right up to the falls, which are stunning. I highly recommend...More

From Elkins Depot it says no in their rules, however I don’t remember them being very strict. I think I took a water bottle. I went on one that served lunch and that began very shortly after our trip began!
