We took a ride with our under age 5 children and they loved it. It's fast enough to keep them entertained but slow enough to enjoy the scenery. A cute activity to fit in during a vacation in the Catskills.

Everyone who visits should go at least once. Great scenery, beautiful train and great people. One of the best conductors in New York! It also has a great museum.
