We were looking for museums that were open on a January Saturday, so we stopped into the Visitors Center. The volunteer working that day was very courteous and knowledgeable, and we had a nice chat about Elkins history. We were disappointed to find that the museums we wanted to see-the railroad museum and the forestry museum were both closed. The volunteer did suggest other sites of interest, and was very helpful.

The Welcome Center is a great place to find things to do in Elkins and the surrounding area. The volunteers are friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable. They know all of the best restaurants and places to go for fun. Note that this is not the business that runs the train rides out of Elkins, but they can give you all kinds of info about the trains.

Train ride was nice. Good commentary, Lunch not so much. Stale bun, room temperature meats and cheese. pasta salad was pasta with Itialian dressing. I would advise getting a lunch somewhere else and bring it on the train.

The train station is a historical and functioning one and home to the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad. We took the CHEAT MOUNTAIN SALAMANDER tour. It's a 120 miles, eight hour round trip. A included free lunch buffet as was beverages. We went on opening day and we were happy we did. We spent two night, a laid back trip. If you like nature, history and trains, DO IT!
