We enjoy train rides, hoped for better fall color but that didn't bother us at all really. Looked forward to scenery. Actually, there's not much to see . And we had to wait almost an hour at the top for another train to come past....More

Just like in the old days, one can ride the rails for a couple of hours in the fall and enjoy the beauty of the rolling hills, full fall colors, and improvised music while riding the rails.

Two options for rides are available, took the southeastern route. Highlights of the trip include two cover bridges near the tracks. The crews' narration was not very exciting. This was a relaxing and scenic trip, well worth the visit.
