While on our cruise, we took the train ride on The Panama Canal Railway. The ride was nice and the 2 conductresses were very pleasant. We were fortunate to book the Dome Car, which I recommend. It places you up higher so you can see more of the scenery. During the ride they served a compimentary cup of Panamanian Coffee (which was delicious), refreshments and snacks and upon leaving you were given a boxed snack. While there was no food available for purchase on the train, you could buy alcoholic drinks. During the ride, the girls performed a traditional song & dance, which we never got to see in the dome car. THAT WAS DISAPPOINTING. We were all waiting for them to come up and perform for us, but they didn't. There is a souvenier area at the station. The worst part was the bus ride back to Colon. We made a stop at the Duty Free Station, but only stayed 1/2 hour (should have been 1 hr) and at the Miraflores Locks (Pacific side) we stayed 1 hr, when 1/2 hr would have been sufficient. It would have been much better taking the train back.
