We planned our trip to see the Fall colors along the river and mountains near Romney,W.Virginia. We had beautiful weather and many photo opportunities. One of the Potomac Eagle's claims to fame are seeing Bald Eagles along the train route and we were not disappointed. Even with a large group, we felt we had room to move around, staying in... More

Ride was 3 hrs. long. They told us local history about houses and lands we passed along the way. We did sight about 6 eagles along the way. This would not be a good trip for children , adults yes.

The weather was wonderful, but the best part was the eagles soaring through the "Trough"! Our historian on board added such great knowledge during the trip and the beauty of the changing leaves made this a trip to remember. I highly recommend this train ride to everyone. What a wonderful family experience!

The title of this railway is very well chosen. It chugs alongside the Potomac River and offer an opportunity to see Bald Eagles en route. Good views and narration and I observed 2 separate pairs of Eagles on the wing and a Juvenile sitting adjacent to its nest. There is not a lot to see at the Depot other than... More

The Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad was a great ride. We went through some very scenic areas and in one section we were able to see eagles nests and eagles flying around. We saw deer, rabbits and even a bobcat. We rode in the club car which was air conditioned and came with lunch and dinner service during the trip. It... More

While most of the cars are enclosed they are not climate controlled, so be prepared. What was disappointing is after a two and one half hour ride the train stops in a very small town for just over an hour in what appears to be an attempt to stimulate the economy a the few shops located close to the stop.
