We saw 13 eagles: Tip: Sit on the port side of the train because the river is on that side. The viewing is far above average compared to many other West Virginia excursion trains because trees seldom block the view. Our car had large windows....More

The advertising blurb on the internet promised more than we felt we got. Wild eagles cannot be accurately predicted to be there and we felt the commentary left us somewhat confused. The river scenery was very nice though.

We took the 3 hour, 1pm ride on September 30, 2018. I gave the lower rating of average (3 stars) due to the poor experience of Club Car. Scenery and wildlife throughout the trough is exceptional! The train’s narrator lacks ability to utilize landmarks when...More

We went with a travelzoo offer, which cut off trips before the leaves will change. I'm sure this trip would be beautiful during a West Virginia autumn but just riding the train for the sake of riding the train is pretty boring. The cars could...More

We took the train in coach and loved the oldie 1920's seats. The staff is darling, especially Richard. We brought our own picnic but there is a service car. The views were lovely. The narration was good. For train bluffs this is great. We saw...More
