This was the first train ride for this 60-something guy - my wife and I went for our 2nd Wedding Anniversary and absolutely loved it! The volunteer who narrated the excursion was excellent!

We won tickets for this railroad at a charity auction. The train/cars need a good paint job but the excursion was fine. It was very informative and a relaxing jog across to enterprise Kansas. The narrator was a great story teller

It was a perfect day weather wise to amble across the Kansas countryside on the ASVRR open air rail car. . It's not luxurious, nor is advertised as such., but it was worth the price of admission. A great adventure for young families with kids.

On a whim we rode the train! We had a ball. The fall countryside was delightful. Looking over the side of the open car to the Smokey Hill River below was a thrill! In Enterprise we learned so much about the old mill and it's...More

Train ride was canceled due to rain & derailment. Customer service was good for refund, otherwise I was disappointed that another ride wasn't scheduled to replace it.

We ordered tickets for the dinner train ride on a Saturday night. It was the diesel train, very cute, and I enjoyed the narration the guide gave at the beginning of the ride. Dinner was pretty decent; it was Mr K's prime rib. I don't...More

I'm sorry, I have no idea as we did not take the train ride. Only visited the museum.
