  • Great experience. Cool steam locomotives with historical value. Love the whistle. The only drawback is that it is not close to a decent size city. There are apparently cabins nearby but not easy to find and know how good or secure they might be. Need more guidance. Beautiful scenery too.
  • I took the bald knob trip, the conductor was great at his job, and the brakeman were fast and efficient. For lack of better terms, it was a well oiled machine! The guy talking on the loud speaker was both funny and informative, and the overall ride was historically fulfilling and enjoyable. Note: do not wear white clothes, as the soot and cinders will change the color to a more blacked version!
