First time on the train. It was a 3.5 hour ride. They had entertainment between the 5 courses. You try to guess the mystery, who the murder was, motivate and clues that led to your decision. The prime rib, soup, mashed potatoes, appetizers was excellent!

This was the best ever train trip. A good 5 course meal, during which a play is enacted in the aisles in front of you. A two hour round trip full of fun and interest. Highly recommended for anyone over the age of 15.
