Not Many Know About The Donations-Only Train Ride You Can Take In West Virginia

Trains are a West Virginia specialty. Thanks to the state’s long, convoluted connection to both the mining and logging industries, old railroad tracks crisscross our mountains and historic railroad artifacts dot our forests. Scenic train rides are among the most popular attractions in the whole Mountain State, selling out almost every season. Durbin & Greenbrier Valley railroad is a famous one, as is the Potomac Eagle and Autumn Colors Express. But there’s another unadvertised scenic train ride through wild, wonderful West Virginia that almost no one knows about, and, unbelievably enough, it’s free – but of course, donations are very much appreciated.
