Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad in West Virginia is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017. For two decades, tourist trains have hauled passengers through some of West Virginia’s most remote terrain with on-board hospitality, good food, and mountain camaraderie.
Located within a day’s drive of some of the country’s biggest cities, the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad is a perfect summertime destination for you and your family. Our historic train rides take passengers on fun-filled train rides from the towns of Elkins, Cass, Durbin, or Cheat Bridge. The company’s philosophy of “leave the city behind and relax in the mountains” is something that has driven out-of-state tourists to West Virginia for the last several years.
In drifting out of the hustle and bustle of urban life, visiting the railroad and the surrounding high mountain beauty of West Virginia gives families the opportunity to relax with one another and create a memorable vacation in a setting that people don’t often get to experience. Internet and cell phone service may be limited at times, but limiting these types of amenities gives families the chance to be entertained and educated differently. The railroad and its historic towns along the route tell the story of American architecture and the importance of coal mining and timber.
