It was a lot of fun my two boys are ages 14 and 12 enjoyed the guitar player who led some singing. Dress for the weather. It was a little chilly the day we went but we heard it could be really hot in the cars on much warmer days.

Take a book if you are just going to have a nice relaxing day.. The sound system wasn't working so we didn't get the history of the train. We heard a few things but my husband was more interested in the history and is a bit of a buff. He was able to ask a lot of questions and got his answers. He loved the Coopersville museum a it is run by volunteers and donations. He learned a lot from the volunteer, how had actually written and published a couple of books related to the history of trains in Michigan. We both had a wonderful time. It would have been fun to bring our grandchildren but we would probably done a "theme train" with them.

Just plan on going with a group of friends or family. We had a total group of 8 and had such a good time. They have entertainment on board even. When we went, all 3 cars were practically full to capacity. And relax and enjoy a peaceful ride.

About The Coopersville & Marne Railway Company

The Coopersville & Marne Railway Company whisks riders back in time aboard passenger cars from the early 1900s, a diesel locomotive built in 1952, and tracks laid in 1858. Trained volunteers dressed in period uniforms welcome passengers, who then set out on a route through scenic fields and family-owned farmlands as a soundtrack of 1800s train music plays in the background. Throughout the ride, the conductor shares stories about the train and its route, filled with glimpses of deer, wild turkeys, and eagles, as well as several flowing creeks. Upon request, passengers may join the engineer in his cab to see how the train works or perform duets of “The Ballad of Casey Jones.”

The railway company regularly hosts special events aboard its trains, including the Great Train Robbery, a Wild West–themed escapade with volunteers playing Jesse James, the Earp brothers, and other legendary figures. To celebrate the holidays, the company operates a Santa train where kids can meet Kris Kringle; a bunny train with a walking, talking Easter bunny; and a fall-themed ride that includes a visit to a pumpkin patch.
