This is an hour-long ride on a narrow gauge railroad. It not exciting but is something different to do. I would recommend it if you are in the area.

Had a great time on the moonlight train ride. Definitely recommend this ride. The highlight was Engine 10. If you are into trains, you have to see the shay drive up close. Just incredible. Look forward to going back during the day and ride again.

A wonderfully restored engine and a thrilling ride through beautiful lush forest, now sadly affected by wildfires.

Went on this train on a Sunday at 2pm.The Journey was only an hour long with one stop in the woods. The station looks very authentic very attractive however paying $96 for four adults I thought was a bit steep.In all a nice trip.
