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

Much to our disappointment, the train was not running while we were there, but we got a sneak peek. The 2141 is a grand old steam train with an interesting history. The train runs July and August. The October Ghost train rides and Trick or...More

We went on the Christmas train with our two kids and unfortunately it was on a very cold night. We had to wait even longer outside as a freight train (which was running late) had priority over our train. Not their fault but it still...More

Rode the Christmas train. The ride lasted about an hour, it was nice, the staff were friendly. Be prepared to stand out in the cold for 45 minutes before you get inside. They offered a small indoor area and outdoor heaters where you could warm...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
