We did an afternoon trip on the New Tygart Flyer (11 AM - 3 PM) with the lunch buffet included. We decided on this since we could not book a trip on the evening dinner train (sold out / suggest booking two months or more in advance since it apparently fills up fast in the Parlor Car although "regular" seeing...

My boyfriend my kids and myself absolutely loved the train ride. My children are young but they had an amazing time. We will definitely be visiting again.

We took off just on a sightseeing tour and ended up at the train station. The ride was great...lots of scenery, and at the falls plenty of time to look around and see what is there. Lunch was good and plentiful. Would recommend!

At first I was skeptical after reading reviews that the Cass trains were more scenic. The views on this trsin were enjoyable. The sandwhich buffet was yummy. It was build your own sandwhich, so being vegetarian i had cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, mustard and mayonaise and loved my sandwhich.

Fantastic, we (Pap, Nan, Grandson13, granddaughter 11) all enjoyed the train ride and loved getting out at the Cheat Falls walking around before boarding train again. It was relaxing and great experience for all of us. Only one thing was the lunch was just Ok. So glad we did this trip

Whar a wonderful time. My husband and I had seats in the Parlor car which I would highly recommend the extra money to get these seats. We were able to board first and had a very relaxed environment. We enjoyed a sandwich lunch and the ability to get wine if you chose. The attendant in the Parlor car on this... More

Enjoyed the ride through the scenery. We even say a bear cub running through the woods. Rode in the Parlor Car. Comfortable chairs, fresh lunch, and delicious dessert. The falls are beautiful.

The New Tygart Flyer is a collection of old carriages from the days of the named trains like the Chieftain and pulled by (I believe) a 1940's diesel. The views along the river are stunning at times and well worth seeing. The buffet lunch is fine and the stop at the falls is pretty good but at around 18ft not... More
