Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad Trip for Adults 50+

Thursday, June 20, 2019

All aboard as we travel to Boone for a spectacular excursion on the historic Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad! We’ll start the day with an early lunch at the popular Van Hemert’s Dutch Oven Bakery, a full-line scratch bakery offering a variety of delicious pastries and baked goods as well as a wonderful menu of signature sandwiches, salads and soups. Then it’s all aboard for a ride on the Fraser Train for a round way trip from Boone to the old coal mining town of Fraser. We’ll enjoy spectacular scenery from the comfort of the climate controlled coach, including an incredible view as we cross the Bass Point Creek High Bridge, which at 156 feet tall is the tallest singletrack interurban railroad bridge in the United States. We’ll also have time to explore the many displays and railroad memorabilia in the James H. Andrew Railroad Museum. Your registration includes transportation, a train ticket and admission to the museum. Please bring spending money for lunch.
