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 splendid scenery in the Mountain State! The Mountain Explorer Dinner Train is a 4-hour, round trip excursion through scenic West Virginia backcountry to the High Falls of Cheat.  A four course meal prepared en-route is served throughout the trip.  This is a unique and memorable evening!

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 enjoy your ride on West Virginia’s only dinner train!
