Five of us (two children under 5) went on the train ride. Both children really enjoyed the train ride. Great views. There are both inside and outside seating, and you can walk between all the cars, except the engine and one reserved car.

Took morning train trip. We were able to choose inside or outside seating. Enjoyed views and information. Only animal sighting was a chipmunk. There is a gift shop at the depot and they also sell food and souvenirs on the train.

My wife, son, and I took the train ride last week and really enjoyed our time and thought that the price for the ticket was well worth it. A scenic view with some interesting narrating done by one of the employees while on the train.

Morning is cooler and less chance of cloud cover. There is a covered car, so rain wouldn't be a big problem.
