Our 5 Star Reviews

“I booked a bedroom on the “Colonial Crafts” as part of the Solar Eclipse Excursion between Washington, DC and Charlotte, NC. Although I had ridden in a private railcar once before for a short positioning move, this was my first long distance private railcar event.

Everything was fantastic! Bob and his team are delightful to work with; they went above and beyond to make sure the excursion was a success. His team of porters is thoughtful and attentive, to the point of remembering how I like my coffee prepared. Chef Lou created *amazing* meals — the food was spectacular and plentiful. Make sure to try his savory egg and cheese roulade at breakfast!

I highly recommend the “Colonial Crafts” experience, and look forward to riding with them again!” – Rob S.

“Took my granddaughter (14) to see the eclipse in SC. Thoroughly enjoyed the leisurely ride, awesome service and over-the-top delicious meals! They took such good care of us. I felt so safe traveling this way. They couldn’t have been more accommodating. Looking forward to doing it again!” – Carol T.
