Western characters make surprise appearances during Durbin & Greenbrier Valley RR Wild West Weekend. Their steam driven trains are tempting targets of robbers, but never fear, there hold-up is all in fun.

Durbin & Greenbrier Valley RR operate beautifully refurbished and historic locomotives that depart from both Elkins and Durbin depots, which allow travelers the opportunity to enjoy scenic West Virginia from an entirely new perspective — aboard any one of their four unique trains. From April to December, The Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad offers Five Mountain Rail Adventures, each with its own unique journey, into some of the best scenery this side of the Rockies.

Their unique collection of trains roll through a potpourri of West Virginia mountain wilderness areas. Choose to chug alongside a clean, mountain river, and take in the sights of rolling meadows of wildflowers and the sounds of a genuine steam locomotive. Climb to over 4,000 feet in elevation in a powerful diesel, burrow under the mighty Cheat Mountain and negotiate the two sharpest mainline railroad curves in the U.S.
