I have to say that I was really disappointed with Train and Riverboat ride. I spent the extra money and bought upgrade tickets for seats the rotate and are cushioned. I must say it was very comfortable but the problem was that it hot weather you will have the window opens to enjoy the breeze. But you will not enjoy the breeze because you will be covered in soot from the coal. It was horrible. I had to choose between the heat or the ashes. I didn't really enjoy the view either. All I saw was a bunch of trees, which I saw plenty of during the car ride to the station.

I wouldn't recommend the train ride but they have a great displays of old trains that you should look at . It was good fun.

Two coal-fired locomotives pull restored railroad cars. There is steam, the whistle, and the clickety-clack noise on the tracks like in old time movies. A tourist excursion through the most beautiful country. You will see forests and streams, nostalgic towns, and views of the Connecticut River, picturesque farms, a millpond, lots of wildwife. I saw an Egret which was really beautiful. They have occassional diner car occasions you have to book in advance.
