Hocking Valley Scenic Railway
Climb aboard a vintage train for a ride along the Hocking River from historic Nelsonville, Ohio! The Hocking Valley Scenic Railway operates train rides from the one-time home of "Star Bricks" in Athens County near the Hocking Hills each Saturday and Sunday between Memorial Day weekend and October. During the year, we host several special trains including the Easter Bunny Train & Egg Hunt, Robbery Trains, All-Caboose Train, Fall Foliage, Santa Trains, and New Year's Eve Train! Our special event trains tend to sell out early, so be sure to check ahead if you haven't already order tickets. Our weekend trains between May and October are very easy on family budgets and make for a great day out with the kids and/or grandkids! And best of all, kids under three always ride free!
The trains are currently all diesel-powered by locomotives built during the 1950s. The coaches include three enclosed coaches built in the 1920s, two open-air cars used during the warmer months, and three air-conditioned coaches (subject to availability).
Our all-volunteer, non-profit railroad has been providing great family memories since 1972, and we look forward to your ride with us this year!
All of our trains are listed on our website, along with on-line ticket ordering and a download-able brochure. Additionally, you can call our toll-free number any time at 800-967-7834.
We can't wait to see you and your family in Nelsonville!
