"It was an enjoyable day for my husband and I. In addition to the beautiful scenic views, someone on the train was pointing out various buildings/lands/houses/etc and providing very interesting historic facts about those things and the area."

I enjoyed this train ride and so did my family. I selected that I would not go back because to me it's sort of been there done that...

The rail car was hot. You could not always hear the announcer clearly. She mentioned a few eagle nests allegedly off in the distance. Even if you could spot it, it would too far to really see it. She never pointed out a single eagle.
