See a Show, Then Hit the Rails

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

Feel like getting into training during a visit to Elkins, W.Va.?

The Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad (877-MTN-RAIL, has scenic excursions through the Monongahela National Forest, including four-hour trips on the New Tygart Flyer ($40 including buffet lunch) and the Mountain Explorer Dinner Train ($65 including four-course dinner), which is pictured at left.

Both depart from the restored Elkins depot, which marks its 100th anniversary this year; a Depot Centennial and Railroad Days celebration is July 10-13.
