Staff was friendly and are all volunteers!! Improvements since our last trip: narration along the route. Warning: stay seated until it's safely on its way down the tracks bc the beginning is really rough.

This is a very basic railroad with a simple depot and nondescript location but operated by a staff dedicated to making your train ride the best it can be. Our experience was with a bus tour on a railroading ramble in Ohio and Pennsylvania. This...More
