Travel into the high country spruce forests of Cheat Mountain on one of the most distinctive rail excursions in the eastern US. This 120-mile (approximately 8.5 hour) ride transports you through mile after mile of unbroken, untamed mountain wilderness that has remained unchanged since the time before modern civilization arrived. This trip also includes interesting features such as a long tunnel built with an “S” curve far underneath Cheat Mountain, numerous long mountain vistas, and many opportunities to view wildlife including bald eagle and black bear sightings. Stopovers include the inspirational “High Falls of the Cheat” and the former sight of the town of Spruce, WV, once the highest and coldest incorporated town east of the Mississippi, accessible only by rail.  Ticket price includes lunch on board.

The Cheat Mountain Salamander train excursion departs the historic Elkins train depot in Elkins, WV at 9:15 AM.  This vintage diesel excursion train will start boarding at 9:00 AM, with your choice of seating, all located by the windows which line each side of the train cars.

After departure, our trains will allow you to step back in time and feel the days of old as you enjoy the views of mountains and wildlife from one of our enclosed passenger cars. We will also pass through a S curve tunnel, and make stops at the High Falls of Cheat and the old town of Spruce  to stretch your legs at the scenic stops and be sure to have a camera on hand for some great photo opportunities!
