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.

For years my husband’s and my friends encouraged us to take the Potomac Eagle train ride out of Romney, WV. Everyone said it was well worth the time and money. Well, finally at the beginning of October we decided it was time for us to experience the ride. After such a long wait we opted for going first class in... More

Wonderful scenic ride along the south branch of the potomac. Worth the price. You travel through the "Trough" a section of he river where the mountains come right down to th edge of the river. Good commentary about local history along the way.

My wife and I rode the Potomac Eagle and enjoyed it very much. The train ride 3 hours long, round trip. We were able to see Eagles in the wild, which was very exciting. The food on board is very "family priced" and does not cost "an arm and a leg". I wish the train would offer an "adults only"... More

The Potomac Eagle excursion is well worth doing if in the area. We took the 3 hour ride on a misty day, as we were only in the area for a few days. We still enjoyed the relaxing ride down the Potomac River. A tour guide points out historic sites and gives historical information and also points out interesting wildlife.... More

Even though it was drizzling and misty our family enjoyed this trip greatly. The staff handled everything very well. We have ridden a number of scenic trains and the staff here is among the best. The narration was interesting and helped us to spot about 9 bald eagles during the trip as well as filling us in on the history... More
