Wherever you are seated on the train, a concession car is easily accessible and includes snacks (pretzels, candy, popcorn) and drinks including water, soda, coffee and Gatorade. We had four kids from ages 10 down to 3 on board during a recent ride. I believe the snack car had to be one of their favorites as we visited that car at least ten times to load up on either snacks or essentials, like a train conductor's hat for my little one. I was pleasantly surprised to find all items- be it the food, drinks or trinkets to take home- were a price that I didn't bat an eye at.
