If you have not ridden the Thunder Mountain train, it appears you have missed your chance as the company is suspending its operations.

The company made the announcement on its website this afternoon. The Thunder Mountain Line has provided trips and event rides through the scenic Idaho backcountry since 1998. The train was often seen travelling along the Payette River near Highway 55 or out to the Emmett area.

The company has not said exactly why they are closing down.
