Amtrak Excursions!
November 5-6, 2011

Once again this year, with cooperation of Norfolk Southern and Amtrak, we are pleased to offer two fine excursion trains in Southwest Virginia.
On the weekend of November 5 and 6, riders have the chance to ride the rails in our area once again. We will operate two round-trip excursions. On Saturday, November 5, 2011 our excursion train will depart the former N&W passenger station bound for historica Abingdon, Virginia..

On Sunday, November 6, 2011, the train will travel to one of our most popular destinations in over 40 years of operating trips; Bluefield, West Virginia. Bluefield is the heart of the coalfields, and offers mountain railroading at its finest.
