We enjoyed our ride in the parlor car but didn't find the scenery as striking as we thought it might be. The falls are lovely and we appreciated the historical info on the speaker but we probably won't do it again.

My husband and I took the advice of other TripAdvisor reviewers and booked a seat in the parlor car of the train. Absolutely the right decision - nice tables with super comfortable chairs. We took the four hour round trip to Cheat Falls. After starting...More

Enjoyed this experience on the Durbin & Greenbrier Railway. It was just my husband and I and we both enjoy the lure of trains. We paid extra for the Parlor Car, which was worth it. The server on our car was friendly and hospitable. Enjoyed...More

A tad overpriced, but a nice scenic journey to a set of falls on the Cheat River. The falls were amazing and you get plenty of time to explore. The staff on the train are very friendly, but the lunch was a bit lackluster.

This was an excellent adventure. IF you are not traveling with children, GET THE PARLOR CAR if you can. The windows are larger, and on the return trip, you can see inside the tunnel. Tables for 2 and they serve alcohol (although I didn't do...More

Quick trip away for the weekend and this was the perfect "something different" we needed. The lunch train trip was wonderful, we had great service. I chose the parlor car which was worth the extra charge. It felt roomier and we had table service. Also,...More

It's a typical train ride. The buffet is adequate, but it's sandwiches and has nothing particularly memorable. The staff was great, and went out of their way to help our elderly mother who had mobility issues. The stop to visit the falls was absolutely worth...More

What a great way to spend a day! If you go splurge on the parlor car it was a lot of fun . Great way to see the area and learn local history.

I'll answer as best I can. I tried to upgrade to the Parlor Car on the day of our trip, but it was full. But the "regular" car where our seats were had a few empty seats on both sides, including window seats. Seat... More

Call 1-877-686-7245. I seriously doubt if you'll be able to get a ticket at this late date though!
