Train Ride Oct 29
This trip is a 4 hour out and back trip in the mountains of WVA leaving Elkins (see below) at 11:00AM. We stop at a Water fall in the mountains to peruse the flora and fauna there. Lunch is a cold buffet and soft drinks are included. Wine is available for purchase (Patty and Jen)!! Unfortunately no Lobster for Ray. We will be together in the Parlor Car (antique fancy passenger car from 1922).
The club is subsidizing half of the 72 dollar fare so the cost per person is $36.00 and needs to be paid to Tom Wuellette by October 12, 2016.
Make check payable to the North Hills Sports Car Club and send it to Tom at:
112 Heather Drive
Pittsburgh PA 15209-1818
We need to be at the railroad depot (yard) no later than 10:30 AM as the train leaves at 11AM. Address and contact info for the railroad is:
Durbin & Greenbrier Valley RR
315 Railroad Ave.
Elkins, WV 26241
Toll-Free: 877.MTN.RAIL (877.686.7245)
It is here that we should be boarding. Elkins is about 3 hours from Pittsburgh but may be closer depending on where you live. There are approximate directions on the Durbin and Tygart website but I am sure Google will be better.
The tour is 4 hours so plan accordingly
Our classic 1922-era deluxe Pullman Parlor car offers seating in cushioned armchairs and features excellent viewing opportunities on the return trip from the rear of the train. A cold sandwich buffet is available as well as a variety of dessert options. All non-alcoholic beverages are included in the ticket price (coffee, tea, soda and water). A selection of wine is available for purchase in the Parlor Car only – cash only! Children under 12 are NOT Permitted.
This car has a capacity of 25 persons I am not sure if they will just get more chairs if we get more than 25.
Good Reading! (If your building a course, it's more like_ required_ reading.)
