  • It was educational. The staff was very knowledgeable. Plenty of room to spread out. The day was beautiful and our fellow passengers were friendly.

  • Loved it!! All the people working there were super friendly and so informative. Listening to the history by the conductor was so interesting!! It's crazy how you can live your whole life in a state and not know about some things. It was also pretty cool to see the conductor run the train on coal!! Definitely not an easy job and they really ran around making sure everything was taken care of. Totally recommend 😊👍
  • Great place to visit. The drive up is spectacular and the vistas are amazing! Very picturesque town with lots of friendly locals that invite you in. Photos taken during recent research trip for my novels, Hawthorn Lake, Siege at Hawthorn Lake and Hawthorn Lake - Reprisal. Check em out on Amazon
