Train was nice, remodeled. But could not hear conductor explain what we were seeing. Just a little river and a lot of woods. Would not take again.

I took this excursion towards the end of the summer. The refurbished 1920's coaches were terrific and many of the windows open. The view of the river was nice and we saw great blue herons. Make sure you sit on the side of the coach...More

Nice train train. They need to offer wine and cheeses- we brought our own which was a no no. They also need speakers as you can't heard the conductor describe what you are seeing

A relaxing ride on a beautiful summer day on a fully restored passenger train along the Lackawaxen River. The staff and volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable about the train service. Highly recommend for all ages.

The passenger coaches have been lovingly restored. New paint. Very clean. Friendly knowledgable conductor and volunteers. We went to Lackawaxen. Beautiful scenery. A relaxing way to spend a morning. Not sure it's good for small children. They might find it boring.
