It was the first time I took this train to Leavenworth. It was very nice.
Cons
The time of the departure could have been earlier. I would have loved to have seen all the sites.
Tips
Make sure to book a lower level if you need it, or you will have to be in the upper level. It's very tricky to get you and your bag up stairs.
