    I had moderate hopes for this, but found several disappointing issues. This was advertised as a fall 'foliage train' which indicated to me that a great amount of the natural beauty inherent in the leaf changing would be very visible. It was not, because all of the windows in every car were absolutely filthy. Nothing was discernible.

    There was narration as the train progressed, but it was not audible. One of the employees simply blamed all of the guests on this 'scenic railway', stating the narration was not audible because people were talking....Read More

    Great place to go with young kids. I love trains. Theme rides could have more to create the theme.

There was narration as the train progressed, but it was not audible. One of the employees simply blamed all of the guests on this 'scenic railway', stating the narration was not audible because people were talking. Unfortunately, it is the other way around. People were talking because there was nothing to see and nothing to hear. I could vaguely make out some of the narration; enough to note that it was cutting in and out because of bad contacts between cars. The volume also wasn't high enough to be heard.

If the windows had been clear enough to make out anything of interest AND the issues with the audio volume and quality were resolved, this could have been a neat trip. They weren't, so it wasn't.
