A tad overpriced, but a nice scenic journey to a set of falls on the Cheat River. The falls were amazing and you get plenty of time to explore. The staff on the train are very friendly, but the lunch was a bit lackluster.

This was an excellent adventure. IF you are not traveling with children, GET THE PARLOR CAR if you can. The windows are larger, and on the return trip, you can see inside the tunnel. Tables for 2 and they serve alcohol (although I didn't do...More

It's a typical train ride. The buffet is adequate, but it's sandwiches and has nothing particularly memorable. The staff was great, and went out of their way to help our elderly mother who had mobility issues. The stop to visit the falls was absolutely worth...More

What a great way to spend a day! If you go splurge on the parlor car it was a lot of fun . Great way to see the area and learn local history.

We enjoyed this trip and the people we met. The lunchtime "sandwich bar" was more than we expected. We enjoyed a stop at some waterfalls that were flowing rapidly after an overnight rain.

Very fun trip – two hours out, and two hours back. If you are on a couples date, try to book seats in the parlor car – there is table service, free iced tea, lemonade, etc., and it is much less crowded (each couple gets...More

We took our sister, brother and mother in law on the train last Saturday. Although the weather was cold and rainy for May, the train ride was great. The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed seeing the rivers and streams, beaver dams, and the high...More

I'll answer as best I can. I tried to upgrade to the Parlor Car on the day of our trip, but it was full. But the "regular" car where our seats were had a few empty seats on both sides, including window seats. Seat... More

Call 1-877-686-7245. I seriously doubt if you'll be able to get a ticket at this late date though!
