This was the third time we have been on the train but the first time at Christmas. It was a blast. The banjo player was great. The conductor was very helpful, Santa was very kind and engaging. He spent a fair amount of time with all the kids. Even mrs. Clause was there handing out candy canes. We will be back again and again. Only problem is it books up way too early. Book in advance.

Being a world traveler, I'm used to worthwhile attractions costing a lot of money. So it was such a wonderful surprise to have an attraction this renowned to be so reasonably priced. For just around $65 my beautiful wife and I were able to ride in comfort and class, and take in breathtaking scenery. For the duration of the trip, as well as the cozy comfortable accomodations, I would have been willing to pay double or triple what we paid. Just a terrific trip, especially when one considers the price. Would recommend to anyone with taste and class.

We figured it was too late for the regular season, but since we were staying Summerland for a week, we thought we would find the main station and hopefully get more information from someone that might be there. We did look at their website, but I like to talk to people.

The season is actually quite short (May to October) likely due to the weather at that sea level. But there are a couple of special runs they do in the fall and for Christmas. Unfortunately our stay only was during a run that Saturday and it was booked up.

We will be going back in the summer to catch some of the things that were closed this time and this is one for sure. There is a senior rate, but not apparently for the Great Train Robber and BBQ event. So perhaps just the ride to the trestle and back for us!

The station was open and a nice young woman was very helpful as well as a young man that works there who was instrumental in us taking a look at the S. S. Sicamous in Penticton. Can't wait to try it next year!
