A singing conductor is advertised, but our trip was not accompanied by song. We got lots of chatter about the history of the area, sugar cane farming, palm tree etc. You can learn more from any Maui guidebook than you will on the train.
Watching the turntable spin the locomotive around at Lahaina.
Watching the train get "watered" (filling up to make steam) at the Kaanapali station.
Crossing the trestle bridge.
Ask nicely, and they may let you take a photo on the locomotive.
Doesn’t sound like much? It isn’t. I’d do it again, but would recommend this only to serious train buffs (who may scoff because the train isn’t that old) and people with young kids.
One way tickets are available, as are slots on the Thursday night dinner train ($59 adults, $39 kids - yikes!). Pay by credit card at the Kaanapali or Lahaina stations or cash on train.
