I do not know what kind of idiot official thinks that a small [blink and miss it] town and its Lion's club can afford the government inspection costs [$135,000, I was told]. If the government wants to inspect, then do so but not at the...More

Totally unbelievable what a small Lions Club (a mere 37 members) in a rural, isolated part of the state does. Unfortunately after 35 years of excursiions this is the end of the line, so to speak. No more train rides. A unique experience and we...More

We had a wonderful family day, traveling to Ione and spending a couple hours on the train. The fall colors were beautiful and our host was great. We look forward to doing it again next year!

Be sure to book this early! We really loved seeing the countryside and Fall colors from the train. It's about 1.5 hours for the round trip. People were very nice and we had a great view even from an enclosed car. The train stops in...More

For a town of only 500 people, they really pull together and give a great train ride with a tressle with a dam underneath, nice length tunnel with great old refurbished cars. We thoroughly enjoyed the train ride. Beats others in larger cities that we...More

What fun. Riding an old time train with open or closed cars. Seeing miles of the Pend Oreille river by train. Having the bad guys board the train and scare you. Not expensive and enjoyable in the fall, autumn colors.

Four of us thoroughly enjoyed the train ride next to the river. We sat in one of the "inside" cars, view was nice and we were cozy. Great volunteers who gave informative overviews along the way. Metalline Falls is a lovely and scenic small town...More
