worth every penny paid to get the train to take you up to Frostburg. Nice coast back for 18 miles. Fun ride. Will do it again.

I purchased tickets for for this trip as a birthday present. I t was a very enjoyable and fun experience. All the staffers from the people manning the concessions to the train conductor were pleasant and ready to answer any questions. The steam locomotive was great.
Great experience on a real steam train!

I rode in the Parlor car, but had a seat behind the ones in front of the windows. The trip length was just right at about an hour each way with a 90 minute stop in Frostburg. Also, beer and wine was available in the Parlor car. The carriage museum in Frostburg was free, and the turntable was really cool to watch rotate the locomotive and tinder car.
Beautiful ride through the changing trees

We loved the ride from Cumberland to Frostburg, MD./ The scenery was beautiful and the ride was very nice. We were in a standard train car, but it is possible to get fancier seating. The last car on the train has a lunch counter. Downside: Frostburg is at the bottom of a very steep and long hill which must be climbed to get to shops and most restaurants. There is only one small restaurant near the train station and since the layover is only an hour, it was impossible for everyone to eat lunch there. Either bring a packed lunch, or eat on the train before arriving in Frostburg. The train ran out of hotdogs and wraps quickly when we reboarded the train for the return trip to Cumberland.

This train ride allowed you to see the natural beauty of the leaves changing colors. As the train rides toward Frostburg, you are given a lot of background information about about the area and the train. The staff was very nice. I can't wait to go back.
