Check Out the Valley on These Train Excursions

Sit back and enjoy the modernized ambiance of beautifully renovated passenger cars and enjoy a delectable meal as you ride on Virginia’s only regularly scheduled tourist train that runs through the legendary Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains on the Virginia Scenic Railway.

The Virginia Scenic Railway offers two excursions, the Alleghany Special and the Blue Ridge Flyer. These round-trip trains depart from the historic Amtrak Staunton station in Staunton. Each trip includes a meal and dessert selection, plus a beverage served in a complimentary souvenir glass.

The Alleghany Special ventures west from historic Staunton through beautiful rolling fields of the Shenandoah Valley on a destination bound for the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests.

The Blue Ridge Flyer heads east for an opportunity to experience the thrill of roaring through the Blue Ridge Tunnel, carved out of rock hundreds of feet below the mountain summit above.
