RatingCommentsDemographicsCreated
5 StarsExcellent!The whole area is abundant with natural beauty and the Big South Fork Railway is the best way to see it. Let the engineer (Bill Johnson) do the driving while you enjoy the scenery. We had a very relaxing time during the trip. The staff at the railway and at the national park were friendly and willing to make the visit memorable. Thank you folks for making our day such a nice experience. Terry and Charli J. and FamilyFamily07-13-14
