Fabulous train ride. Did the short 1 hour journey. Think it's worth doing the first class for the extra 5 dollars, commentary all throughout. Do reasonably priced drinks on the train too.

This was such a waste of money but it could have been great. We took the ride to Bartlett and paid for the first class carriage. The ride itself was comfortable. There was nothing to see. The track was lined with trees with limited views...More

Super cute little family ride. Totally recommend the 11 mile ride for young little ones. Bring cash for the snack bar. The conductor was very nice and gave us a complimentary water since we had no cash.
