What is unique about this ride is that 2141, the locomotive, is the only one of its kind left and it has been restored over ten years from being a park ornament. Not many steam trips travel over mainlines still in use by passenger and...More

Thank you for riding our Spirit of Christmas rail tour! Unfortunately we can only control the lights and experience on our train, and not the surroundings of the train tracks. It would be good to know what advertisement you saw that said otherwise, so we...More

Nothing like a ride on a steam operated train and original cars. Add in special events like Christmas and it puts a sparkle in the eye of everyone and lets the young see the charm in the old ways. There are summer trains as well...More
