(Departs Durbin, WV Depot)
We’ve refurbished 2 original Wabash RR cabooses into comfortable efficiency suites on rails!
Your overnight package includes a round-trip fare on the DURBIN ROCKET steam train ride, where you will be “cast away” at one of two remote settings. Located several miles from the nearest encroachment of the modern world, this secluded wilderness setting along the beautiful Greenbrier River is where you will spend the evening with only the rushing waters of the river to break the quiet of the night. At the end of your stay the train will pull your caboose car back to Durbin where you will be treated to your first glimpse of civilization!
Each CASTAWAY CABOOSE has room for up to six adults and includes a refrigerator, range, heat, linens, towels, utensils, DVD player, full-size shower, and restroom. They depart and arrive from the Depot in Durbin on the regular schedule of the DURBIN ROCKET train, so plan accordingly. A personal load of firewood will be provided for your campfire. No cell phone service is available.
Please call 877-686-7245 for availability and reservations.
