Murder Mystery Dinner Train

“Doggy Don’t” There have been several reports of a poltergeist on the Highland Express and a group of ghost chasers have been contacted to exorcise this nuisance. This spirit won’t go without taking someone with it and the Gang may have met their nemesis. But they won’t go down without a fight and few puppy treats – there will be ghostly gender confusion, there will be imaginative weapons, there will be hare brained schemes, and most importantly, murderous mayhem will abound. Train departs from the Elkins Depot at 5:00 PM on a four hour round trip event that also includes an onboard four-course dinner. Mountainrail.com 877-686-7245 Ext. 109

Blue Moon Train Ride to Bald Knob

This happens only once in a Blue Moon! July 31 is the second full moon of the month and this Blue Moon trip to Bald Knob should be a memorable one! At an altitude of 4,843 feet (1,476 m) above sea level, Bald Knob is the second highest mountain in West Virginia and the Allegheny Mountains. Its lofty elevation (only 21 feet lower than the highest point in the Alleghenies, Spruce Knob) gives Bald Knob a unique Canadian-like ecosystem and offers magnificent views. On clear days, the Bald Knob overlook provides a beautiful view into two states, and on a clear night an awe-inspiring look at the heavens! Trip includes extended layover at the overlook. A moon pie and RC cola for all! 5.5 hour round trip event. Departs Cass Depot at 7:00 PM. Mountainrail.com 866-460-7265
