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

At time of booking trip, we had family member in extended hospital stay in a distant state. Asked about refund policy in case we needed to cancel. Told it would be no problem to reschedule for a future date. (i.e., no cash refund). Due to unexpected sudden death and funeral, had to cancel. Again reassured no problem to reschedule at... More

Drove from Northern Virginia to Romeny, WV for the afternoon "dinner train". Lovely drive through the countryside to get there, and the three-hour train ride was relaxing. The train needs a little updating, and the "gourmet dinner" was chicken in gravy over mashed potatoes with a side of green beans. The waitstaff was very pleasant, and the food tasty, but... More

We went in October 2012 on the morning trip. My then four year old granddaughter and her grandpa decided they needed to ride a train. We went up the day before and stayed at the Koolwink. Took the half day trip because I figured my granddaughter would be fussing within two hours. It was chilly but it was October in... More
