  • Historic train ride through the mountains. We did the half day option. Open sided cars available as well as enclosed. There is a stop at the end to get out take pictures and view the engine and caboose. The engineer is knowledgeable and gives a narrative throughout most of the trip. Lots of information was given. Beautiful scenery.
  • I have lived here for over 10 years this is a beautiful and fairly inexpensive place to live with a small-town feel and neighbors you can trust
  • Did this train ride today! It was a fun and informative experience. Love that they have open and glass viewing rail cars. The gift shop was nice as well! Love that they had hot cocoa on board the train since it was cold today. Will recommend this to anyone with kids, couples, young and old.
  • Fun train ride with beautiful views! Pet friendly too!
  • Friendly staff and the price is reasonable. I was allowed to bring my dog. Call ahead to let them know. I filled out a form while on the train and kept Strawberry on a leash. The trip was fun and informative.
