Train Route

Join us for a relaxing journey through the mountains of Allegany County in vintage passenger cars behind historic diesel-electric locomotives. Passengers will experience a 4.5 hour round trip, starting and ending at the historic depot in downtown Cumberland with a 90-minute layover in the beautiful town of Frostburg, allowing for time to explore the shops and restaurants on Main Street. Bikes are permitted aboard the train on Fridays and Saturdays only and are limited to ten per trip. Please call ahead when booking.

Our Route From Cumberland to Frostburg

Leaving Cumberland, the route travels west through a breach in the Allegheny Mountains over an iron truss bridge, around Helmstetter’s Horseshoe Curve and through the 914-foot Brush Tunnel under Piney Mountain. Climbing grades up to 2.8% on the 16-mile trek, the route follows the former Western Maryland Railroad right-of-way, then joins the old Cumberland & Pennsylvania Railroad.
