We really enjoyed learning about the history and the views are beautiful. Yes, it's a short 1-hour ride but that's ok. A 2-hour trip through more mountain passes, etc. would be ideal but it is what it is, and it's cool to hear the train whistle and see the steam spiraling out into the mountain air. You can pay a little more and ride in a heated, enclosed car (take your photos with no problem through the large windows) or pay less and ride in the open cars. It was cold and snowy so we wisely chose the heated car. (Don't get the apple cider, by the way - most horrid stuff I've ever tasted, which is what they DO need to improve upon) Either way, it's a fun way to spend an hour or two. Kids will enjoy it.
