Attraction details
Owner description: Your journey begins at Wappocomo Station, situated next to a charming homestead and a sprawling view of the mountains. Enjoy the sounds of vintage diesels as they lead you through beautiful pastures and farms dating back to the 1700s. As you wind along the South Branch of the Potomac River, you’ll enter a visually-striking gorge known as the Trough. One of the most scenic spots along the South Branch, the Trough is home to American bald eagles. All excursions are round-trip and include narration. A concession car is available to purchase snacks and drinks. Sorry, no smoking, pets, or alcoholic beverages permitted.

Went on Fall Foliage lunch train.

The non-train folks in our group had a great time and felt some nostalgia.

Food was actually very tasty. Crew was very friendly.

Cars were in decent shape. They do let you have access to the windows in the vestibules.

Word of warning...go first class if you can. I walked the train...the experience is completely different from coach.
