Our family took the 6-hour trip back in June and thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband, my sister, her husband, her 9-yr.-old daughter, and I took my parents on a first-class ride in celebration of their 65th anniversary. The parents wanted to the full 6 hours, so we booked passage in the club car. Because we had concerns about how the... More

Friday, 30 Oct 2015 Rosie and I rode the historic Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad train. It is one of America's most beautiful train rides. We rode the train for three hours and enjoy a narrated excursion through a tranquil and pristine mountain valley near Romney, West Virginia. It is narrated over the train's PA system which is good but if... More

We went on this ride for the first time with friends and were not disappointed. We took the 3 hour ride in October for the foliage and got the "regular" tickets - $55 each for the old geezer rate. The train is a couple miles north of Romney on Rt 28, off of route 50. The parking area is just... More

Took this ride with a group of co-workers to see the fall foliage. Unfortunately, it was overcast all day. Still, the scenery was pretty and we saw several eagles during our ride. The seats are pretty comfortable and you can prop open your window if you'd like a breeze. There are also two open air cars at the front of... More

I was so looking forward to a relaxing train ride in the most beautiful part of West Virginia!! The Potomac Eagle was a little dated,needs some love and care. The meal was delicious and the wait staff very friendly.The one negative about my train ride was the screaming children in the first class car with us!!! We couldn't hear the... More

It was a beautiful ride along the river. We saw several bald eagles. The leaves were not pretty, but that is not the trains fault. The cars are very old, as expected. Very little leg room. Our car was pretty cool, while others were warmer. Ours also had a problem with the door between cars. It would not close properly... More

It was a nice ride, the leaves were not as nice as we expected and the scenery was ok but the ride there was better. We saw lots of Eagles and the narrator was great. The ride was just a little too pricey for what it was.

I was disappointed with the condition of our car. It needed cleaned and painted. It had no charm. The meal was good but was served on paper plates and plastic utensils. The over growth along the train blocked much of the view. We did have several eagle sightings which redeemed the trip. I took this trip 16 years ago and... More

Loved this- beautiful views, bald eagles, and while waiting for the excursion we went to a driving range next door and hit some balls! Very good food/ light snacks. Very enjoyable indeed.

This ride was very enjoyable and relaxing. We paid for coach in the heated car but you could pay more for the better car with a chef making lunch. Either way you still could see everything. They had a car in the center for snack items (hot dogs, cheese and nachos, drinks and bag snacks). The trough was where you... More
