Hocking Valley Scenic Railway


The collection of rolling stock amassed and restored by this volunteer-run nonprofit railway is inspired: commuter coaches from the 1920s; a B&O passenger coach from the 1940s; bi-level Pullman cars from the 1960s; and locomotives, cabooses, and other utility cars from all periods.

On weekends from late May through late October, you can ride in one of the passenger cars pulled by a vintage diesel engine along track that once belonged to the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway. Round-trips between Nelsonville and either Haydenville or Logan are just under and just over 2 hours, respectively. Fall foliage and holiday trains are popular.
