There is one thing our family has gotten really, really good at, and that involves some steam powered horses on rails. Yes, not long after entering Busch Gardens Williamsburg to experience Christmas Town, the boys heard that distinct sound that meant one thing, and one thing only, we needed to find the nearest train station fast.
We were fortunate to ride the blue Balmoral Castle train, which is a custom built English style locomotive, built for the 1975 opening of the park. The Balmoral Castle train is named for Queen Victoria’s house in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The layout of the ride around the park is quite impressive, with some amazing trestle bridges, as seen (as much as possible when ON the train) in the final video below.
