Excellent trip on a cool day. Had a good time conversing with a couple from South Bend, IN. Reasonably priced with comfortable accommodations. Didn't sound very interesting when wife suggested we go, but had a good time.

There is nothing like a train ride through the mountains. It takes you back to a time when things moved at a slower pace. For two hours, there is only conversation and enjoying the scenery going by. We are looking forward to coming back in...More

It was nice to take a step back in time, see the views and the rain made for some great water falling from the rocks.

We took the train on a rainy day. It was a fun experience although we battled foggy windows at times. We were surprised that food is offered at all times (cash only). Passengers are allowed to walk around with open seating. Overall enjoyable experience.

A definite must do in Branson. Great trip in a comfortsble coach with beautiful scenery. Kids and adults enjoy the ride through tunnels and over 100+ foot bridges. Waterfalls and history along the way. Glad.we did this.

Nice family trip. We sat near the dining car. The cars are vintage so a little rough, but cool. It was a little difficult to hear over the intercom. It was a rainy day, but we had plenty of great views and waterfalls. Lunch was...More

It really depends on your size. Table would be more comfortable if you find sitting in a regular booth uncomfortable
