Historic train soars

Visitors can take in Hardy County's natural beauty aboard the Potomac Eagle scenic railroad.

The historic rail line runs through the county's countryside and the magnificent "Trough," a narrow mountain valley with the South Branch of the Potomac River running below.

The Potomac Eagle is known for providing passengers with an opportune setting to view American Bald Eagles in their eastern home. Passengers are encouraged to bring their cameras as the majestic birds commonly soar high above the train and swoop down in pursuit of prey.

For three hours, passengers can enjoy a narrated excursion with an on-board snack bar and concession car. First class seating on the train provides a climate controlled lounge and dining car with light snacks, beverages and gourmet desserts served. Passengers also can bring a picnic with them.

All trains depart from the Wappocomo Station, just one and a half miles north of Romney on Route 28 unless indicated otherwise.
