I had another great trip with friends on 707 Operations heritage train. It was a great experience to travel with friends in a different setting and one of the best ways to travel. The volunteers couldn't be nicer and makes the trip a great experience. I'd definitely travel with 707 Operations again and recommend it to friends and family.
