    "Honestly we were very excited to go to this. The drive out there was beautiful. The train was pretty cool considering the cars you ride in are over 100yrs old. But if asked to go again I would say absolutely not. The mosquitoes were so thick, you were getting eaten alive even while the train was moving. There were also biting flies and wasps. It was only 78 out but felt like 98 in the train. Theres no leg room so very uncomfortable. Also it being a scenic train, there was nothing to look at and see. Its straight trees and a couple farmers fields. $80 for the four of us to go was soooo not worth it. No good views, hot and stuffy and your fighting mosquitoes and flies the entire ride. The only decent part is the guy that told us the history about the trains he was great and knew so much information and history. But I would so much rather pay half the price to not have to go for that terrible ride and just listen to his knowledge. The Riverside and Great Northern Railway was much more enjoyable. It had zero mosquitoes, very friendly staff and better prices. This Mid-Continent Railway was an overall disappointment."

    "Great find for us! All pieces on display were beautifully restored. Was pleasantly surprised by the prices in the gift shop! We’ll be returning once the second car house opens."
