This is a great attraction for families. Children will just love the train ride and beautiful country scenery A must to visit when you are in the area. Dine while the train takes you through the farmland of Amish Country, such beautiful view.

Took the grandchild on the Santa ride and she seemed to have enjoyed it, we did as well the Christmas carolers, Santa on the train, the view , the steam locomotive with that whistle,so much to absorb, the station itself is very clean, nice calm atmosphere everything in an orderly fashion, shops looked inviting but had no time to shop

Mrs. B and I took the Christmas train and sat in the Parlor Car. It was a great experience. When the train gets under way there appears a man in a stocking cap and nightgown who starts telling "The Night Before Christmas". The book is large and contains pictures which everyone, especially the children loved. The Parlor Car offers soda,... More

Train lovers' delight. Exciting riding in a steam engine train in an open car or closed car. . Riding through the pennsylvania farmland is delightful. You can stop halfway, get out and picnic, then get back on another train to return. Narration from conductor interesting. Train whistle exciting. Snackbars, giftshops available. Great way to spend a day. A bit pricey... More

Enjoyed a two round trip ride aboard the railway and enjoyed the scenery, seating, and guests. But, it not cheap and the ride is too short..., just a notch or two above a park ride at an amusement park. Just getting settled-in when it stopped. Wished for a two hour trip, but rail line does not accommodate this option.

Took the coach class train, the ride itself was fine. There were carolers and a a trumpet-tuba duo in Victorian garb. Disappointed that the first class tickets were completely sold out through the end of the year but it didn't say so on the website. The photos that they take on the train cost extra. The toy they promise to... More

I have a one year old and a six year old, and I knew the trip was going to be great when their eyes lit up as the steam locomotive pulled into the station. We chose the train that Santa visits. The tickets are relatively cheap compared to many Christmas events. It's not just Santa on the train. You will... More
