Any day on a train is a good day... But this railroad had Terrible accommodations. Bathrooms filthy. No narration on excursion. No special consideration for child traveling in wheelchair. No snacks available on or off train. The good news the views were beautiful.

Great to see an old operational train. The younger children got very antsy on the hour long train ride to Roxbury and back, there was only scenery to watch. The adults enjoyed that part of the trip. A little nerve wracking with young children walking...More
