All aboard for a train-lover’s adventure in the mountains of West Virginia! Ride the road made of steel through the Alleghenies and feel the power of working Shay, Heisler, and possibly a Climax locomotive as they tow you along switchbacks, mountain vistas and river gorges. Watch mechanics working their magic in an operating train maintenance shop, sing railroad songs and dine while your ride aboard the vintage passenger coaches of the early 1900s. Between train rides, enjoy performances of traditional Appalachian music.
