Hop aboard a vintage train for a trip through history. Departing at 1:00 pm from Nelsonville, this train operates over former Hocking Valley Railway track to East Logan and return. The trip in its entirety will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. It is the same route to and from East Logan; the train simply reverses direction by moving the locomotive to the other end of the train.
Along the way, you will pass by the remains of Hocking Canal Lock No. 19 and Haydenville, Ohios last company town. You will also get a glimpse of the current industry in the Valley including gravel mining operations and a lumber facility. On-board narration will provide a history of the area and railroad.
You may bring soft drinks and food aboard. No restrooms on the train (available in the depot). There is a wheelchair lift available at the depot as needed.
