It's a real "Hoot"! What other train, allows you to travel in an open car, smell the fresh air, and have unobstructed views? It takes you back in time, when things went along a little slower. Can't wait to go back!

This is great for little kids. For adults it is noisy (lots of kids) and not much to offer in the theory of historical memories. The museum was great in Arcade with the music accompanying the buying of tickets. The fiddle player and accordion player followed on the train. They were great! They sang old songs that many of the children do not hear in school but brought a smile to my face remembering how it used to be. When the train stopped there was not a lot of time to purchase food by the time you went through the small museum then went to the food line. The best part for us was the lady selling homemade jam there. They could add vegetable and crafts for adults. Taking grandchildren next.

Please allow more driving time than the driving directions state due to traffic congestion in Arcade. We almost missed the train. The staff were very nice, understanding and accommodating and were able to ride. It was the most relaxing experience we had all summer ( once we were on the train).

Although staff was wonderful, train was clean and comfortable, scenery was lovely, it wasn't a good trip for a couple of seniors with canes and balance problems. Didn't know we were going to have to traverse stone walkways, etc.

On a nice day, get there at least a half hour before scheduled time, to ensure good seats!

From Our Editors

The Arcade & Attica Railroad began its existence as a handful of incomplete tracks, proceeding in stops and starts through the Allegheny River valley. When the Pennsylvania Railroad Company decided it needed service to Buffalo, it bought up the disparate stretches of rail line and linked them together. The company and its successors hardly imagined it to be one of their more long-lasting endeavors, but the little railroad weathered track washouts and bankruptcies and even made it through the Great Depression without laying off a single employee. In the 1950s, its owners decided to try short, scenic passenger excursions to bolster their flagging freight business, and the tourist line as it exists today was born.

These days, trains launch from historical Arcade Station, which is a small museum of American railroad history. A restored steam engine idles out front, waiting to pull up to 382 passengers through countryside largely unchanged since the 1880s. In addition to stunning views, excursions provide photo opportunities with the locomotive and the chance to enthusiastically wear striped overalls in public.
