The Scenic Railway has a fair bit of history attached to it and it is highly relevant to the whole area. It was a nice museum - very interesting.

I didn't take the train ride but the museum and rail station were dirty, lacking, and uninteresting.

Great value and lots of fun for a couple of hours. If you have not been on a tourist train ride before, take this excursion.

The train is a really old, slow train, which makes it more fun - It creeps along the edge of town and usually there is someone explaining all the details of the town. It is also used at Halloween.

We really had a great time riding the Haunted Railroad this weekend! The entertainment was fun, scary and very enjoyable. The little girls behind me were scared and I felt bad for them. My family loved every minute of it!

Both my husband and I enjoyed the scenery of Southern Indiana from this different perspective. The robbery was just fun and the acters a kick to talk to.

When we went, it was just a train ride (no theater) and the price was the same for all the cars. Some cars had a/c and a second "floor", which I didn't care for because it's very skinny and it's just a long bench. The main... More

Ours was with a Lions Clubs group, I would say about an hour and half total, down and back. It was not very scenic.
