(Departs Elkins, WV Depot)

We invite you to enjoy an evening of fine dining on our beautifully appointed MOUNTAIN EXPLORER DINNER TRAIN as it travels through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Mountain State!

Train travel and fine dining have been one of the great pleasures enjoyed by previous generations of Americans. As faster modes of transportation evolved, the magnificent long-distance passenger trains began to disappear, thus bringing to a close the era of dining car service. However, many who remember this time in history still visualize the emotions evoked by this combination of dining  accompanied by the rhythmic melody of the rails. This is the perfect weekend getaway for couples and friends.
Sit back, relax and be pampered!

Check out our events schedule for the popular Murder Mystery Dinner trains. For you Murder Mystery buffs, we’ve added a Murder Mystery Extravaganza on July 23, 24, and 25. Be part of three different mysteries in three separate locations – Gandy Dancer Theatre in Elkins on July 23, Cass Scenic Railroad on July 24, and the Mountain Explorer Dinner Train on July 25.
This is a weekend you won’t want to miss! Call 877-686-7245, ext. 109.
