This is a experience and history for all ages. The scenery of this 90 minute train ride is phenomenal. Just unbelievable engineering back in the time. There is also a train robbery event also and other holiday themes. Reservation is a must.....

It was neat to watch the train go by and hear some of the history on it. It would definitely be good for kids and adults too. A nice break from wine tours, if you need one.

Number one tourist attraction, train goes ten kilometres each way with stop at trestle while engine switches. Guides in each car, open air cars give best views.
