This is a simple, slow-paced trip aboard an attractive 1950's-era train that gives you plenty of time to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature with your loved ones. We chose Standard Dining, which is climate-controlled and included a basic but adequate lunch (cold sub, chips, water, etc). After our meal, we walked through the train to the open-air car for an unobstructed view. It was a very enjoyable experience and we would love to do it again.
