Hocking Valley Scenic Railway
Nelsonville, Ohio
October 22, 2017

Ohio Valley Railcars invites you to participate in riding the 23 + round trip mile Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, Sunday, October 22, 2017. We will ride the railroad once in the morning, and then we will have lunch on a special OVR caboose train. The Hocking Valley is comprised part of the original Hocking Valley Railway's Athens Branch. The Hocking Valley was eventually merged into the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway in 1930, with the Athens Branch slowly becoming "dead weight" to the ever-expanding C&O. Thus the HVSR purchased the current route in 1985. Our set on is to be announced in your confirmation letter to be sent this summer. NARCOA Insurance and compliance with the Rule Book is required along with the OVR policy book. All operators must be NARCOA certified. With the return of your registration you will be sent a map and required NARCOA paperwork. The run fee includes lunch and caboose train for 2 adults. If you have extra passengers, there is an extra fee for each person. Limit of 25 cars. No pets. Please mail this form for registration:
