Day 1

Following a meal stop en route to Elkins, West Virginia, mid-afternoon we will check in to the Hampton Inn Elkins (304-630-7500) for a two-night stay. The hotel offers an indoor pool, fitness center, business center, and coin operated guest laundry. The guest rooms are well-appointed with a microwave, mini refrigerator, coffee maker, 32" HDTV, hair dryer, iron/ironing board and complimentary high speed internet access. After a brief time to freshen up, we will depart for dinner with our local guide providing interesting information about the Elkins area on our way to the Gandy Dancer Theatre for dinner and a show.

Day 2

Following a deluxe continental breakfast included at the hotel, we will depart for the newly restored train depot in Elkins to board the Cheat Mountain Salamander for a leisurely ride through the picturesque mountainside with a stop at the inspirational High Falls of the Cheat, where you will enjoy a boxed lunch included aboard the train. The train will continue on its journey through wilderness unspoiled by our modern world. After our train ride, we will board our motorcoach and travel a short distance to Durbin to experience the sights and sounds of the Durbin Rocket. Built back in 1929, the Durbin Rocket is powered by a standard class C-90 3 truck Heisler #6 locomotive and was most recently used at Cass Scenic Railroad. Enjoy the beautiful river and mountain views from the authentic 1920's era coaches and vintage wooden cabooses on this two-hour excursion through the Monongahela National Forest. Next, we return to the hotel to freshen up and then make our way to the Graceland Mansion for dinner and a self-guided tour. Located on the campus of Davis & Elkins College, Graceland Mansion is constructed of sandstone and hardwoods native to the region and built in Queen Anne architectural style and welcomed the elite of the area and the nation to many elaborate social occasions, political caucuses and business gatherings. After dinner, we return to the hotel where the remainder of the evening is yours to enjoy the hotel amenities.

Day 3

After a deluxe continental breakfast, we will check-out and depart for Cass, WV to take a ride on the Cass Railroad. Please dress warm, as the train does have an open air car and can get chilly. Prepare to take a step back in time and relive an era when steam-driven locomotives were an essential part of everyday life. Unparalleled views and the sounds of the whistles and rails transport you back in time for a serene ride along the rails. A boxed lunch will be included prior to our ride. At the conclusion of the train ride, we will depart for home with a meal stop en route at your expense.
