“We discovered this place by chance on Google looking for a train ride for the kids and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed at all! Great experience, the kids really enjoyed it and so did us adults. The staff is exceptional here – I believe most, if not all, are volunteers. They were all super friendly, helpful and willing to share history and stories. The train ride lasts a good 40 minutes, plus they did a switchover – after we went to the one end, they move the engine around to the front of the train to return. You can ride an open air car, caboose & passenger cars through the country side over a few bridges, crossings and along and over a creek or two. They also have those open mini cars you can ride on the rails, a nice model railroad display in a caboose, a gift shop, refreshments, and more. Well worth it, especially on kids day! All very, very reasonably priced in comparison to other similar train rides.”
“It was a very special day. Everyone was so welcoming and happy. The location is beautiful!
My grandson is visually impaired and he had quite a bit of anxiety before we boarded. Dave came along and stepped right up. He really helped him enjoy the experience. Thanks for the hat Dave! The train itself is a very pleasant ride. Dave told us to find him when we got back. He promptly scooped up my grandson and took him on the motor car. He kept a him calm and Chris the driver was great too.
We loved our ice cream and my grandson had the opportunity to ride a miniature horse!
It was a great day and I highly recommend the experience for everyone.
Thank you to all!”
“We had a wonderful visit to the train station yesterday with my grand babes who are visiting from Bermuda. They are 3 and 15 months. They loved the train ride and the petting zoo. My grandson even rode a pony for the first time. They even let him blow the train whistle in the museum for the miniature trains. Everyone was so friendly, informative and helpful. Even when I tripped into a hole that had opened up in the macadam near the snack bar they were right there making sure I was ok after bringing to their attention. What a wonderful experience we had! Definitely will be back!”
“One of my favorite places. The area surrounding the railroad is incredible, awesome scenery. The employees are all knowledgeable and friendly, and the setting of the Kempton station is very rustic; when you visit, it feels like you’re stepping back in time. The ride is only forty minutes, but if you like quaint towns with a neat little train ride, then this railroad is for you. Its also conveniently located near Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, which is also a go-to must. 5* here!”
