We’re combining bluegrass and brews this summer in presenting our very first craft-beer train in conjunction with Big Timber Brewing Company of Elkins, West Virginia. Enjoy a 90-minute train ride from Elkins to Nova Scotia Rocks and return onboard our enclosed and climate-controlled passenger train. Onboard, you’ll be treated to Big Timber’s three most popular local brews: the Logger Lager Pilsner, the Porter, and its IPA. Big Timber representatives will be onboard to discuss the beer-making process and share with you the different hops and ingredients used to produce these West Virginia originals.

In-between brews, you’ll unwind with local bluegrass talent as our train winds through the forests along the Tygart River. You must 21+ years of age to attend this event train. Price includes 90-minute train ride, onboard entertainment and light food, and three beers. A local brewery tour will be held after our train returns to the Elkins Depot for those interested in purchasing additional Big Timber products. Brewery tours are an additional $10 charge payable at the brewery.
