  • If you like trains or fun thing for the whole family this could be your ticket. Run by volunteers who clearly like what they do. Brought back many childhood memories of when I rode trains regularly. Authentic train experience. Had a great time!
  • We went on the peanut Express with myself my sister and our combined for children. We had an awesome time. We sat in the Americus car had a great View. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we had a good time even having an extra deck of cards that they lent to us to keep our 5 6 7 and 8 year old entertained. A special shout-out to miss opal. The telephone Museum was pretty cool. And the peanut ice cream in Plains Georgia was amazing!! We also found a few hidden treasures; a baseball field right behind the restaurant we stopped at and a picnic table right next to the police station that was covered by a gazebo and had an antique Coca-Cola machine out front. The towns were nostalgic and the ride was good.
  • Fun for little kids. Was a bit crowded but my 3yr old loved it.
  • This is a Top Of The Line Business!!! You can visit America, GA. , Plains, GA., BBQ and Fireworks on July 4th ... And Thomas The Train usually visits Twice A Year!!! The passenger cars are comfortable and Air Conditioned ... Call ahead to find out what events are happening!!!
  • Had a blast on their 4th of July train ride. I expected we'd stop at some park but we actually just stopped on a bridge over the water to eat and watch the fireworks, it was so much more beautiful than I thought. Just if you can pay for the best car, do.
