This was a fun trip. I would definitely recommend it especially if you have kids. We took the first train at 1030 because the theme train later was all booked so if you want to do the Train robbery make sure you get your tickets...More

My sister my husband and myself took this excursion on a recent morning. The train is authentic. The conductor/tour guide was pleasant and informative. We felt at $25 each it was great value.

Step back in time at the authentic station house with many delights to taunt you inside. Step aboard the train and enjoy the sounds and sights as you wind through back mountains and over the famous tressel bridge.

We found the trip in a tourist brochure and booked online - that was the easy part. Finding the train depot was not easy at all, there are hardly any signs to guide you from highway 97. I wish driving instructions from highway 97 had...More
