We had reserved tickets for the steam train from Fort Bragg to Northspur. When we arrived the diesel engine was being used and not the steam engine...no explanation given and no discount for the change. The Pullman cars could have used restoration. The trip was enjoyable but there was a long line for food at Northspur...had a one hour stop and 40 minutes were spent waiting in line for the food...should have provided another serving line. Train singer was enjoyable and there was a good narration of history and the sites during the ride. Noticed a lot of maintenance piles along the side of the tracks...should be cleaned up. Some riders chose to have a seat to themselves by putting belongings next to them...conductor should notify them that seats are to be shared. We had to sit in ne seat (wife and I, grandson, and dog...very tight!
