NKE Caboose Excursions
« on: July 19, 2020, 05:29:26 PM »
Took my family, brother, and nephew on the caboose excursion NPE offers today.

It was hot, but ride was enjoyable while train was in motion.  30 minute length is long enough to get the experience of riding in a caboose, while keeping the attention of the younger crowd.  For those who donít like loud noise, horn is kept to a minimum given the open doors and windows.

On board personnel were friendly. And accommodating given the heat and delay for removal of a downed tree limb.

At ~$9 per person (ticket and fee from ticketing company) ride is modestly priced.  I rounded up my purchase to even denomination through donation to the NPE. Easily done on their booking site.

Looking forward to trying their passenger car offerings when those return to the operating plan.
