Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad
DURBIN & GREENBRIER VALLEY RAILROAD
The story behind this railway goes back to two truck drivers, John and Kathy Smith, who wanted to preserve the section of track that was washed out from Durbin down to Cass. They got the town and the state behind them to preserve this little piece of rail history in West Virginia..
The other thing I noticed when I was filming up there was the dedication of many of the volunteers along with the paid staff. They all have a passion for the deep railroad history that West Virginia has. They are very friendly and knowledgeable and really add to your overall experience when you ride the train. The other thing that I really like about it is that there are so many rails to trails to bike on, as well, in the area. So even though some of West Virginia's rails have been abandoned and torn up, the state has saved the easements for you to enjoy by walking, riding horses, or taking bikes. In closing, I highly recommend you making the Durbin and Greenbrier railroad one of your next rail adventures.
One thing I love about this railway is the diversity of trips they offer. Everything from taking a journey behind their historic steam train, eating a four-course gourmet meal on their dinner train, and even camping out in one of their cabooses on the Greenbrier River.
