Join us for Moonlight on the Mountain, a NEW experience aboard the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. Start your evening with live music on the boarding platform, beginning at 6:00 PM. Boarding begins at 6:30 PM. Our full-service bars will serve up your favorite beverages and complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available. Enjoy acoustic music and tunes aboard our train as we climb Mountain Maryland to Frostburg and return. The train will pause for 20-minutes in Frostburg to allow you and your group to photograph steam locomotive #1309 at the Frostburg Depot.

This steam-powered special train departs from and returns to Cumberland. Debuting with steam locomotive #1309 is our completely refurbished Great Dome Ocean View. The Ocean View provides spectacular views of Mountain Maryland from the upper deck, and the lower lounge provides cozy and luxurious accommodations.

The following seating options are available:

Table Car Seating, Great Dome “Ocean View” Upper Lounge, Great Dome “Ocean View” Lower Lounge. Retire to our Open-Air Car to enjoy the outdoors as the train rolls under the moonlight.


Please arrive with your entire party when boarding begins to ensure your party is boarded and seated together. You will be assigned to a specific car but seating within the car is unassigned and first come, first serve. Boarding begins 60 minutes prior to departure.

Advanced reservations are suggested, we cannot guarantee seating for any walkup guests. Western Maryland Scenic Railroad makes every effort to maintain its schedule but reserves the right to alter schedules and/or substitute equipment as operating conditions warrant.
