Little guys will thrill to the REAL train and the engine ride. You can't beat steam for historic visuals! Don't miss the train music CDs in the gift shop, helps you recall the train.
Our boys of 4 & 7 love a rail road trip, and a visit up the mountain on a steam train was always going to be a winner! Its a trip back in time to learn the history of Yosemite and logging, the guides are knowledgeable and friendly. There a little café and a great gift shop. I recommend sitting... 更多
On your way to Yosemite on Highway 49 make a stop along the way at the Sugar Pine Railroad in the town of Fish Camp. It is a great way to get a little history of California and it's logging industry in the early years in California. The commentary along a small portion of the train route goes into detail... 更多
We just missed the steam engine trip however they do have an alternative engine that takes you on the same route. The driver was clever and definitely enjoys his job! This was a pleasant trip and we were able to bring our small dog with us even though not "in the rules", more than one employee encouraged us to take... 更多
This is such a fun trip! A one hour ride on an 87 year old steam engine led train through the forest with a narrated tour . Everyone there is friendly and totally knowledgeable. Their goal is to help you enjoy the experience and learn something along the way.Great gift shop, picnic facilities, gold panning, museum...Great place for the entire... 更多
I always enjoy steam engines (we never miss a tourist narrow-gauge railroad) and this was no exception. Staff was friendly, the shops were better than expected, and while clearly catering to kids it was an enjoyable hour for us adults as well. The scenery will not wow you like Yosemite valley or sequoia groves, but it is very pretty pine... 更多
Make sure you call in here if you're in the area - fascinating history and the guys will show you all around the loco and facility (I got up on the footplate and had a good chat to the driver!). We visited in late April, so it wasn't too busy - I imagine it gets hectic in summer! Overall, really... 更多
We had a nice outdoor evening eating a BBQ dinner while listening to the local bluegrass group before boarding the train. Bring a blanket! Great for families. Gold panning was also a hit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this historically significant railroad. It's a great way to put in a couple of hours with the 11am trip on the steam train which takes about an hour through some very pretty scenery. When you arrive back there's a great little museum, a bookshop, lessons available in panning for gold, & a lovely gift... 更多
This was a nice relaxing way to spend some time in the forest. The conductor entertained us with a lot of interesting background information about the origins of the railroad, as well as the history of logging in the area. (He was funny, too.) After the ride, the snack bar offered a back-to-basics lunch of peanut butter and jelly with... 更多
My family enjoyed riding the historical steam train. Staff is very nice and informative. Kids loved the train. Went there the day after a storm and the place was full of snow which added to the joy of the ride. 1 hour ride you should not miss if you are in the area.
Visited the railroad whilst staying in the Narrow gauge inn next door. We were lucky to be there on the opening weekend of the year and rode the steam train into the forest. The commentary was entertaining and informative, and as an engineer the steam train was very impressive to see running. Definitely worth a visit if you're passing and... 更多
The entire experience was fun and educational. Traveling on the old narrow gauge tracks was a first for me and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Additionally all of the staff in all of the areas of the attraction were informative and friendly.
