We had an awesome time on the Catskill Mountain Railroad – we rode for the first time on The Polar Express and we were not disappointed! The staff and crew were amazing and this was hands down one of the best Christmas rides we’ve ever taken. The ride overall was a quick ride at slow speeds, so don’t expect an express – but the experience was top-notch overall.
The only downside that I can think of was the lack of bathrooms on the train itself – most rides we take have those as well, but this is well advertised when you order and board, so it is not a surprise.
We’ll look forward to riding this railroad again!
