West Virginia - Mountain Explorer Dinner Train
The Mountain Explorer Dinner Train is a 4-hour, round-trip train ride through scenic West Virginia backcountry, a four-course meal prepared en-route, and a memorable evening. Destinations vary, depending on the time of year, please call for seasonal specifics.

We invite you to enjoy an evening of fine dining on our beautifully appointed MOUNTAIN EXPLORER DINNER TRAIN as it travels through some of the best scenery in the Eastern United States!

Train travel and fine dining have been one of the great pleasures enjoyed by previous generations of Americans. As faster modes of transportation evolved, the magnificent long-distance passenger trains began to disappear, thus bringing to a close the era of dining car service. However, many who remember this romanticized time in history still visualize the unique notions evoked by this unusual combination of dining while gliding effortlessly past towns and rivers, accompanied by the rhythmic melody of the rails.

The recipes for these unique meals are original menu items offered on the great cross-country trains of the 1930-1960 eras. This is a time that saw some of the finest dining in the US being served as the trains sped across the mountains and plains of our great nation.
