We took the Tygart Flyer in early October hoping to see some color in the mountains. We were not disappointed. First, we had paid a little extra for the Parlor car and it was definitely worth it. We had the table in the back corner by the engine going up. When you get close to the top, the train stops and the engine moves from the front, pulling the train, to the back and pushes it the rest of the way up. This freed up our view and we could then see everything. We got this same view all the way down. I have to say, we had the best seat! I took several pix from inside and they turned out really good. The autumn leaves were awesome. The stop at High Falls was so gorgeous. We spent about 45min. there and I took tons of pix. It was a beautiful day. You should be able to walk on uneven ground and it is a somewhat steep walk down and back up. I highly recommend this in the fall. Not sure how pretty it is at other times of the year. The food was mediocre, but I didn't make the trip for food. I was happy we took the trip.
