Nice ride. Speaker informative- do not spend extra money on caboose ride. You can't hear speaker well, all windows won't open very hot and can't see scenery. Best bet is pay basic rate and ride in open train.

This would be a five-star ride, but it's narrated the entire time now. Previously it was narrated for half the trip, which gave everyone a chance to talk and enjoy the train. The narration is good, but it goes nonstop for the entire ride, which pretty much spoiled it for me.

Didn't have time for the train ride, but the WHOLE city of Abilene is totally Awesome! SO much to see for its size. Like going to a state fair. I'll be back! 😀 Thanks Abilene!
