What type of event is your train suited for?
Our train can be used for festivals, birthday parties, corporate events, company picnics, business promotions, holiday celebrations, grand openings or any occasion where you would like to provide unique family entertainment.

Do you require a down payment?
For birthday parties and small events we require a $50 down payment to hold your date.  The remaining fee will be due at time of arrival.  Festivals and larger events may not require a deposit, depending on the size and track record of the event.

What age group does your train appeal to?
Kids of all ages love our train.  At festivals we have about as many adults ride as we do kids.  Most of our birthday parties are done for kid's ages 2 to 9 years old.

Can adults ride the train?
Yes!  Our train is larger than most others and seats adults comfortably.  At most events we have as many adults ride as kids.  We have had 80 and 90 year old couples ride our train and enjoy it as much, as our youngest riders.  Our motto is "You're Never Too Old To Ride The Train"!

How many people can the train carry at one time?
We have a Maximum capacity of 27 passengers.  The actual number will depend on the size of the passengers.

Is there an age limit for the train?  Can my one-year-old ride?
No.  Anyone can ride our train.  We have had riders as young as a couple of weeks old and as old as 90 years young.  We ask that a parent or older sibling accompany young children.  Common sense is your best guide when deciding if a rider is appropriate.

We have a nearby park.  Can you operate the train in a park?
Neighborhood parks are great places to have a train ride party.  You will need to check with your city recreation department to see if it is OK.  Most city parks require a fee and proof of insurance to use them.  If you plan to use a park, please contact them with the information before hiring us.  We will help you work out the details.

Do you have insurance?
Yes.  We carry a $1,000,000 insurance policy.

Where can you operate your train?
We usually operate on city streets, but can operate on any smooth surface including asphalt or concrete.  We do not operate on grass or gravel and we cannot jump curbs or landscape timbers, however, unlike many trackless trains, we can operate on inclines because of our powerful John Deere Diesel equipped engine.

Do you charge extra for travel time or mileage?
There is no travel fee for events in the Cherryville area.  Due to the time involved and the high cost of fuel, a fee will be charged for events outside this general vicinity.

Do you charge tax?
No!  We do not charge tax on train rides.

Will you travel long distances or out of state?
Yes.  For all day events like festivals, we will travel out of state at no extra charge.

Where are you located?
We are located in Cherryville, NC.  We are about 35 miles west of Charlotte, NC.

What if it rains and I need to cancel?
Due to state regulations on amusement rides and insurance restrictions, we are not allowed to operate in the rain or on wet pavement.  If your event is cancelled due to weather, we will refund your deposit.

What forms of payments do you accept?
We accept cash, money orders, certified checks, company checks, and personal checks.  There will be a $30 service charge on all returned checks.

Any other questions?
Please call or email us with any other questions.  We will be glad to help you in anyway possible.
