Be sure to book your trip on the Parlor Car. Friendly and qualified service, comfortable surroundings, beautiful scenery. Mid-way stop at falls on Cheat River are beautiful.

4 hour train trip, the buffet lunch was lunch meat and mac salad. Chips & beverage as included. Cookies were served on the return trip. When the train stopped at the Falls, there was enough time to take some photos. Crew very helpful to my handicap husband.

The train ride...didn't know about the dark tunnel through which the train had to pass....yikes! Um....I should have upgraded to "parlor" seats due to the limited foods available during lunch service. Very nice touch that the train ladies (sorry, ..I don't know their title) brought out cookies times 2 passes! That went over big with my husband and kids. I... More

Excellent – My wife and I visited Elkins, WV on the weekend to experience the train ride – we had a great time - The train were engaging passengers waiting to board the train – super friendly and polite. We met some new friends and learned about other things to do in Elkins. We will be back soon.

What a fun trip up the mountain. My favorite was when we stop to experience the beautiful waterfalls. My husband truly enjoyed the train ride!! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something different to do. It's worth the trip to Elkins.

The air conditioned parlor car with the cushioned seats was great. The luncheon buffet was good, but would have been nicer if the food was brought to the table. (The train rocks a little which makes carrying food hard.) The ride was through mountains--pretty much the same scenery both ways. New stairs have been built at the falls which makes... More

June 21, 2014 My daughter and I took her sons and my other grandson on the Flyer. Service was great and all the staff we had contact with were very helpful, cheerful and polite. The luncheon was great. Then they came through with the tray of cookies which the kids loved. The only thing that I thought was I don't... More

Some of you may recall the news stories last October about a logging truck which crashed into an excursion train at the railroad crossing on U.S. Route 250 in Randolph County. We had ridden that train not long before this unfortunate incident, and we had a wonderful day. Although the remaining trips in 2013 were cancelled after the accident, I’m... More
