My husband and I love historic train rides. This time, we splurged and got the first class tickets. Oh, the comforts of yesteryear. The seats reclined and even had footrests that could be adjusted. There were a number of families with children on the train, so this is definitely a family friendly outing. The ride was relaxing and the scenery... More

We rode the Hill Country Flyer to Burnet. I had read reviews, some good, some bad, and decided to go with an open mind. It was wonderful. I called before making reservations because I had questions on what car to book. I had to leave a message but received a call back within the hour. The woman I spoke with... More

I took my mom for the spring brunch train and it was relaxing and fun. My mom really enjoyed it and it was our first time to the train. We enjoyed the view and had good brunch and drinks. I took my mom for her Bday and she loved it. I recommend it for all seniors.

The train would be fun for young children once. The scenery is not all that great and wouldn't be something that would warrant a repeat.

We took the train on a Sunday and had a very relaxing day. We rode in the air condition car and am glade we did as it warmed up quickly in the afternoon. Enjoyed the ride but there wasn't much to do at the stops the train had made. The western shootout was fun to watch. Next time we are... More

We went on the train this past weekend. Our car was dark and most of the lights didn't work, so we were like in a cave. For the good parts, Santa was wonderful with kids, as was the book reader. This was enjoyable. Hot chocolate and cookies were enjoyed. The guy with a guitar didn't know all the words to... More

The North Pole flyer was such a disappointment. It was not worth the money!! This train is very dated and not in a charming way. It's pulled by a diesel engine not a steam train which was misleading. They try to make it more interesting with some Christmas Carolers, Santa Claus, book reading, and Mrs. Claus. Half of the workers... More

Four of us took the Hill Country Flyer to Burnet. The weather was perfect. Unless you have children, you might want spring for the adults-only car, as excited little kids tend to create a lot of noise. Fortunately we found a small private lounge where we hung out for the return trip. The steam engine is undergoing renovations; instead we... More
