The ride is approximately 2 1/2 hours long with a stop halfway for the engine to be turned around. There you can see the inner workings of the engine, enjoy snacks or grab a hotdog or some ice cream, and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.
Musicians filled the cars with joyful tunes. You can also walk around the train and to the open car in the back. You can clearly see the scenery and get some fresh air. There are also snacks on the train in case you get hungry.
This train ride will be a nice, relaxing stop for the family and our family enjoyed it.
