  • We went during the Valentine's sweetheart weekend and it was a delight. Riding on a restored 1910 era car that's been refurbished was the coolest thing. The ride up to the winery was smooth and beautiful. Would definitely recommend!
  • We had a nice lil day trip for a Bday party. It rained and that delayed the train ride but we finally got off and enjoyed it. Very neat train car used for parties. Check out their calendar for upcoming specials.
