The fully loaded train rounded a turn next to a hill. As you can see, this trip was appropriate for all ages and sizes of people.

The train emerged from the first of several tunnels along its route. The tunnels were actual tunnels through hills, not fake tunnels as on other unnamed park rail rides.

The sight of steam in the distance was the only hint we got, while riding, that this was a steam engine.

The steam engine was about to enter another tunnel. This one ran under the road that led to the station. Notice the person with a bicycle who watched the train.
