Neat historic area. We enjoyed looking around the outside. We were in the area to go to Paoli Peaks, and the buildings were closed for winter. Hope to return in the future.

If we are a party of three and want first class on the polar express are we able to purchase that because it says 4. Can you purchase the table and have 3?
