    It’s a good experience. A bit pricey. And the seating is pretty snug. But it is a nice way to see a 14er. Be warned, I was unaware that the trip was 1 1/2 hours each way. So plan accordingly. It’s nice if you bring your own lunch. And I would say the three seat side of the train has better views. But the views are amazing and the history they give on the way up is great as well. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. Only complaint is how tight the seating is.

    Yes, it is expensive ($72 for 2 people) but as a rare treat, it is worth it. The conductors do a nice job of narrating on the way up and answering questions on the way down. The seats are a little narrow if you are lucky to have a generous booty like myself but it is an old train. The views from the top are outstanding (as you would expect) but ALWAYS bring a warmer layer. Both times I’ve been up, in July, it either snowed or was windy and in the 40s on top. Yes, it’s warm down in the city, bring a layer anyways.

    lets start from the beginning. Gift shop attendant was very rude, no smile, no how are you nothing! The snack bar (lol) 4.00 hot dog but at least the staff were nice. The conductor OMG pray you get a good one. So loud gave me a headache before we even left. The trip. We thought we were lucky, first row on the three seat side. Guess what, there is no sunblock, and while going up that sun is hot, the window was so dirty my pictures didn’t come out. the drivers seat blocks the view on the two seat side, oh but the driver had a sun visor. The seats are hard, small and very uncomfortable. Are they so hard up for cash that they have to squeeze you in like sardines? The Peak was beautiful, but did that make up for the very long, uncomfortable 2 hour plus trip on a smelly train. We will never do it again, we will drive it. Oh and lets not forget, when you reach the top you have about 20min to do everything you want and need to do, this includes, shop, use the restroom, get more water, or try one of those terrible donuts. I would of loved to have given this experience a 5 star but I won’t lie, people need to know. If you get on the three seat side, your trip will be more then unpleasant. The two seat side may of been better but as I stated we couldn’t see.

    We didn’t knows tickets has to be purchased earlier. Anyway we got ours with just hour waiting for our ride. Seats on the end of train with awesome view all way long. To bad we had to take same train back. But our next trip to the summit was by car. Amazing breathless experience.
