“Fun ride - part of our Canadian heritage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Fun ride on vintage cars and the stream engine. There is a live commentary during the ride. The ride is pretty expensive though, around $80 for the family of 2 adults and 2 children. They say it is a 90 minutes ride, but is really 20-25 minutes return. Rest of the time is for photo taking off the train. Regardless, I liked it. I would not do it again, but recomend people try it once atleast.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Nice little 90 minute ride. Great volunteer running the train. Skip the over crowded open air cars and sit in the vintage cars.

“A must for kids and the kids-at-heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

The reviews were excellent and the experience matched it. There isn't really much more to stay. Only be sure to make reservations beforehand during the summer to ensure that all members of your party can sit together. Enjoy the ride!

We echo the sentiments of other reviewers-this is a lovely ride through lovely countryside. The on-board crew were friendly and entertaining!
The volunteers who are restoring the line are doing a fabulous job-have a great ride!

“Lots of fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

A fun way to pass a couple of hours, fresh air and nice scenery. Good family activity. I have been on this train ride twice in the past couple of years.
