Beautiful ride to the fall colors in the valley. Note to get ticket in advance and plan to park somewhere. The municipal parking is mess and limited

Just felt honored in some weird way to enjoy the ride, admiring the radiant system under the chairs with the chair adjustment option. Nice scenic views. Michael & Evelyn Foisy

Great train ride through some beautiful scenery! Even though it was rainy and foggy it was still a trip I would do again! The information from our tour guide was very interesting and delivered with some humor. I wish it would have lasted longer!

Wish I parked in the municipal lot for $5.00. Found a meter in front of station that I had to feed all day. Parking is #1 issue in Jim Thorpe
