I cannot give a review for the actual train seeing as it was cancelled because of a mud slide. But being almost two months later and still no refund is the worst customer service I have ever seen. Apparently the main office wants to only give 1 or 2 a day according to the representative I talked to today the... More

We looked forward to our Reno Fun Train weekend getaway. Unfortunately, a severe storm forced its cancellation (Amtrak closed the tracks to Reno). I don't blame Key Holidays for that. I do take exception to them not honoring their promise to process a credit. First promise - wait seven days. We waited three weeks. Second promise - you'll see the... More

My wife and I are members of the Pacific Locomotive Association (PLA) and the Niles Canyon Railroad (NCRY). Some of the members planned a Fun Train trip and we went along. The 'fun' was non stop. There were snacks, a great Elvis impersonator, and a Murder Mystery with great actors and clues scattered throughout the train. The views of the... More

I had taken some pictures back in February when we went on the Reno Fun Train and had lost them on the Cloud, but I had finally found them on the Cloud.

We went on the Madri train on Feb 28th. Very nice experience, quiet, peaceful, relaxing trip. This was a special gift for my Birthday. We boarded in Roseville for the 4 hour trip to Reno. We paid for the Gold service. It was well worth the extra comfort and great views from the observation car with gourmet meal service below... More

It's just fun being on a train, period, but add cocktails, music and lots of people in a great mood, and it's a great scene to be in! We got on in Sacramento, and the train was right on time. We had the Gold Service, so we had the dome car, bar and server right in our car. Also a... More

Went on the Mardi Gras trip which was Feb 28-March 2nd. The words "Mardi Gras" should be an indication of how the trip went. Do not confuse the Fun train with the Snow train!
