It was a very interesting trip! We enjoyed the company on the train and had a good time at Silverton!

The tour itself was great. I was asked when we booked what meal (s) we would like, and made the requests. There were no meals provided at/on the train as advertised and paid for. The train conductors did not know of any reserved meals, and there seemed to be some confusion. Train ride itself was great, beautiful, and well worth it. Just wish I hadn't paid for meals we didn't get.
