I would say this is the case if you're into that sort of thing (trains.) I'm not a "train person", really, and on my first two or three trips to the park, I skipped it. I finally did it, and it was nice, fun, charming, etc, and I can fully appreciate why people consider it to be one of the parks signature attractions, but it just wasn't my thing. The little show they did at the stop was cute, but like the Knott's train, I actually far more enjoyed touring the round house and hearing some history about the trains than I actually do riding the trains.
Personally, if I'm going to ride any train at Silverwood, I'll ride the one goin 50 MPH ducking through tunnels!
Having said that, I would recommend the train ride, especially if you're there with kids, family, or just having a nice relaxed day, but it sounds like you had a really great visit to the park without it.
Also, on Tremors, did you notice any of the Rocky Mountain Topper Track?
