Join us to experience the relaxation of the bygone days of traveling by train from your seat in either the reclining seat coaches or the open-air sightseeing cars. Departing from the picturesque Dillwyn Station, the vintage diesel powered train winds through the rolling hills, pastoral farmland, and deep forests of an unspoiled landscape in the heart of Central Virginia. The 3-hour round trip covers 16 miles of the Buckingham Branch Railroad, departing and returning from Dillwyn and features a breathtaking view of the James River from the bridge at Bremo Bluff. The ideal family outing and a way to slow down from today's always connected lifestyle!
The train features classic coaches from railroading’s mid 20th century heyday and unique open-air sightseeing cars to provide an experience unavailable elsewhere in Virginia.
Please note the excursions will comply with government requirements and recommendations regarding the health and safety of passengers in effect at the time of departure, should there be any. Those could include pandemic responses such as masks, social distancing and temperature checks.
And, due to the rural nature of our route, cash is preferred for onboard food and souvenir sales. Also note, the train does not provide Wi-Fi access.
