Our experience on the train was very good. We arrived checked in made our way to our train. our salad course was waiting. your staff came around in a very timely manner to take our drink order. I had ordered the beef dinner and both my husband and I enjoyed our plate. thought the entertainment was a kick. Really did enjoy it. All in all the experience was great. I would tell friends or even bring friends on the train again. Thank you for our enjoyable time.

The Beer Train was so fun! We went with another couple and had a blast! Our seating was awesome and the different breweries in different cars was great so you could explore the entire Train. We ordered the Tri Tip Sandwich and it was pretty good. You need to eat something while drinking! Want to do this again in the Summer so we can see the sights.

Our grandaughter (6 yrs. old) thoroughly enjoyed it...the singing, the search for the xmas bear...skippy the reindeer, the elf, conductor Bob and the banjo player.   So much energy and all the kids loved it.

Christmas Train is much better than the Polar Express. Much more interactive for small children with games, coloring, elves, singing carols, and live music. The Polar Express has none of that. Can't wait till next year on the Christmas Train!! Oh and very helpful and friendly staff.
