Due to the length of our passenger train, we board from several locations. The Heritage Coach location will be on the left side of the platform and will board from one location. You will then walk through other railroad cars to get to sit down at a seat. Please follow the volunteers instructions. If you have any difficulty walking, please let us know and we will try to accommodate you accordingly. The premium and dome boarding location will be on the west end, right side of the platform. Premium will board form one location, and passengers will be required to walk through other cars to get to their assigned car. If you have difficulty walking, you must contact us when you make your reservations and tell us, so we can accommodate you accordingly. If you do not let us know, we cannot accommodate you and you may be required to walk a longer distance than necessary. Dome service will require passengers to climb up 10 stairs to get into the dome car. Stairways and passageways on antiquated railroad equipment, cannot accommodate walkers or wheelchairs. Please advise us of any walking disabilities so we can accommodate you properly and so everyone has an enjoyable experience.



The old C&O railroad depot is a very beautiful building. Here it is seen during the winter after the New River Train Excursions.
