All the rail riders leave at the same time, with a tour guide in the lead.  Guides  turn the rail riders around and help with any other issues that may arise. Safety Crews are at each road crossing…please follow their instructions and cross only with the direction of NPOV Lions Railriders staff. You will cross a State Hwy as a group. Only proceed when advised by NPOV Lions Railrider volunteer  staff member.  Slow down when passing through rail switches and over country roads.  The group spreads out along the track so that there is a safe space between you and the rail rider ahead and behind. This allows each group to enjoy the freedom of the outdoors and the magic of the railroad at their own pace and in their own space.  Each railrider has 4 seats. Each scheduled ride can have up to 11 railriders. Depending on how many guests are scheduled, you may be asked to share a unit with new friends. This is all part of the adventure.
