Brought a busload (56) of people to Elkins for a train ride. The first 2 hrs. were very scenic and interesting. Unfortunately the second 2 hrs. were kind of boring since it was the same scenery, just going backwards. The sandwich and salad that was provided were very good. Unfortunately everyone had to carry their own plate and drink through... More

I loved the four hour train ride to the highest point in the mountains of West Virginia. Fantastic service, nice people, a wonderful experience.

Went on this trip Saturday, October 4th with some friends and family. A little unorganized in the boarding process. There were not 6 seats together in our car and we were not letting the children sit with strangers. Finally they moved us to the concession car. Very roomy and comfortable. The tunnel was awesome but dark and you couldn't see... More

My husband and I rode o the Cheat Mountain Salamander railroad which is part of the of Tygart Flyer. We had the best time riding in the 1917 railroad car with the windows open,watching the mountains and the river go by. It is truly beautiful, the trees were in full color and to top it off we saw a Bald... More

Attended the mystery dinner Saturday night. The young chef seemingly effortlessly provided prime rib, pork loin and crabmeat stuffed tilapia entrees with potatoes and brocoli. The appetizer was the teaser: simply fruit with creme fraiche. Then spring greens with a sublime strawberry Sauvignon dressing. Choice of Cabernet or Zinfidel flowed. Homemade yeast rolls accompanied the meal. Follwing a stop at... More

Great adventure for train enthusiasts. 4 hours was just enough time. Very inexpensive considering lunch service was included.

It is a peaceful, slow, tranquil ride up the mountain. I strongly suggest paying the extra to be in the Parlor Car. Tables were arranged for each group to be together. The service was good. Lunch consisted of a cold cut buffet which was as advertised. Nothing great, but adequate. The scenery is interesting but not breathtaking. It would be... More

We took the Tygart Flyer, which goes to the High Falls of the Cheat River. We chose the Parlor Car and it was worth the higher cost. We had plush leather seats at a reserved table and huge windows to view the scenery. The lunch is average, a buffet with sandwich or salads and chips. Lunch is served on ascent.... More

Did the 4 hour trip to the fall's. They stop at the fall's for about 30 to 45 minute's and have a nice access down to them with upper and lower fall's access. Also noticed that anytime they went past communities, campground's, etc. there would be folk's waving at you. (nice!) The cold cut lunch buffet was nice also. If... More
