  • A great place for young and old train/steam fans. Pleasant staff, most are volunteering to work there.They answered questions and made us glad to be there too! An assortment of different trains to ride including a Shay loco which is a sight let alone functional . Picnic area, small restaurant and ice cream store.
  • Fantastic place. I am super in love with all of the old unique equipment here. The train ride is very fun and worth the money. Haven't tried the restaurant yet but I bet it's delicious.
  • Alot of fun for the family. Prices are good for train rides,and there are different sizes of train to choose from. The train shop is a nice place for your little train lover to find a gift,then swing over to the soda shop and get an old fashioned soda. Check out the weekends that the have the smithy working,and the saw mill.
  • Super friendly staff. We went on a off day by accident and a nice staff member took us around for a backstage look at all the trains. My 3 year old son had a blast and so did I!
  • Great place for young train lovers! My nephew would be happy to ride the trains all day.
