A train buff friend recommended we take the Bennett Lake trip this June. It was a beautiful ride and lovely experience. We learned a great deal about its history and the territory involved. Our guide, David, had just the right blend of doling out information without burying you in too much forgettable stuff. The train itself is romantically old-time -- although one might complain that the diesel engines don't make a good choo-choo sound! Lunch at Bennett Lake was a good and great surprise. Highly recommend!
