Northern Central Railway reviews
The Northern Central Railway takes you on a wonderful trip through the southern York County countryside. Along the way we learned about the history of the area including 500 million year old rocks... more »
I participated in the cowboy weekend last month in New Freedom, PA. Boarded a steam engine at 11am and rode back into history. The cowboys who boarded the train with us later pulled their kerchiefs... more »
The train is beautiful, and as you pull out of the adorable town, people smile and wave to send you off. The wooded path that you take runs parallel to a popular biking trail, and the history is rich and interesting. The scenery is beautiful and the ride relaxing. You can't help but smile the entire time, sitting in your comfy seat, looking out of the authentic period windows. My only complaint is that I thought that it would be moving faster. The train does not move terribly quickly and bumps and clacks, which I got into eventually, but was not what I was expecting having been on modern trains. 9/10 would recommend though. Especially if you have spent some time locally. We passed through the towns, past Glenn Rock Mill Inn which we had been to for a romantic dinner, and Jackson House Bed and Breakfast, which we had stayed at. Overall, a beautiful, romantic way to end a wonderful journey.
If you are on a tight schedule, are traveling or have a sick child, be aware that there is a no refund policy if you need to cancel your tour. The Wild West Train Ride is fun and enjoyable for both adults and children. The actors are into their parts and the interaction between the bandits and good guys is fun. There are a number of different scenarios to entertain. Happy to pose for pictures, too. The Board Of Directors should change the no refund policy as this is a worthwhile tourist attraction, but will be a turn off to many travelers to our area.
