We took the Western train to dinner and really enjoyed it. The Cowboys providing the on-board and after dinner entertainment were fun. The train cars are nice although they don't "match". On the way to Laurel for dinner, we were stopped by a very large...More

This railroad is a top notch operation. It travels through a scenic river valley. It is a delightful way to spend an afternoon. The station is convenient to highway access in the heart of the town.

After being on train trips all over Colorado I have to say this trip was a disappointment. The Wild West show was fun but track is rough. The bathrooms at the end were gross, disgusting, appallingly gross.

Anyone interested the WVR 2017 schedule and has questions can check it out at (765) 825-2054 or Google their website. I recommend the excursion train if you have a whole day to enjoy the ride and stopover in Metamora.
