The Durbin Rocket (which only goes about 5 miles per hour) is a small train pulled by an old coal-fired steam logging engine along a riverside track from the small town of Durbin, WV. An open car, open-side car, and caboose all make it easy...More

Even though we were prepared to have a dismally wet trip, the skies cleared and our group of 6 enjoyed the Whittaker Trip. It was the perfect duration of train ride (we had two young children) and was really nice to get out and stretch...More
