“Satisfied train rider”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The whole experience was fantastic! This was my first train ride and everything I had imagined. The conductor was extremely nice and went way out of his way to make sure that we and our wheelchair friend were taken care of and comfortable in every way!

“Ride the train!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Our trip was on a rainy weekend, but riding the train and visiting the exhibits worked on a wet day.

“Tried to go”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We were there before the train left. They were waiting on some people who never shoed. We asked if they did not show, could we pay for there's and use their space. No it is pre chosen meal. Why not say we had to take what they ordered. We wanted the experience more than the food and were not asking for free could have charged twice for that meal. TVR loss

“Train trip...”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Trip was quite long - 6 1/2 hours and it rained a.m. Stop in McKaysville was disappointing...too little to see/do.

“great, but limited area of riding rails.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Very friendly staff/volunteers. The train rides were ok, you had to travel down and back on the same stretch. Kind of cramped on space too, especially for the Thomas the Train event.
