Holiday Lunch Train
We had a great experience on your "turkey train" (Holiday Lunch Train). The equipment was very nice, the food was excellent, every one of your staff was helpful and friendly and the scenery was terrific. Thank you for exceeding our expectations.
Polar Express 2012
I went on The Polar Express train ride with my family yesterday, and we were in the same car with the narrator he did a very good job of reading the story and I wanted to tip him for it but he told me that his job was not tip-worthy and comes with the ticket and when I insisted he said if I really wanted to thank him to write this review to the station I truly think he did an amazing job and made the trip for my family more magical I will be recommending this trip to family and friends for a long time to come.
Greetings and Happy Holidays!
I have been meaning to send a note to you regarding one of your employees. He made our trip and I reflect that it was a “Roman Holiday!”
A while back I took my parents on the train…the adventure was on their “Bucket List.” Mom is 85 Daddy 90…wishes do come true. Long story short…we were slow in returning to the train…did not hear the whistle…the door to the dome car had been closed so we need to board the train at the far end…long walk for the caning couple…but they made it.
Unfortunately, the train was moving before we could reach our seats…here comes trouble…My folks could not navigate the wiggle and jiggle of the cars and became separated with no hope of getting back to their seats above in the dome car or even to sit together…dream looking like a nightmare…so I went to Roman and vented my worry, concern and frustration…he is a problem solver with a heart…offered to stop the train briefly so we could get back to our proper seats…my HERO! It was my fault we were late…I should have erred on the side of early but didn’t realize how quickly the time had gone…nor did I realize the others in the restaurant who had been on the train were not returning…so I greatly appreciated that Roman found a solution for the separated seniors. Daddy even got misty eyed as he sat next to Mom on the journey back to Hood River.
So a HUGE Thank You to Roman for his caring nature and willingness to find a solution to a bad situation.
I am sorry for the delay in letting you know that you have a conductor that conducts himself in a way that is helpful to your passengers.
May you all have a happy holiday…I will treasure my Roman Holiday memories…smiles and good feelings on an adventure through the orchards of Mt. Hood.
All the best, Lizzy Carney
