Riding the Rails

Romney Railroad Days

I shot some video on the excursion train in West Virginia. It's low definition but it gives you the general idea, and you get to hear the whistle. (Click to start.)

Obviously, this is an old train! That made it easy to imagine what it was like to ride the rails 150 years ago.

The railroad station is just north of Romney, WV. It's pretty basic, but it's also the starting point for the popular "Potomac Eagle" trains, which are more modern and comfortable.
