We travel to Romney, West Virginia for an excursion on one of America’s premier scenic railroads, the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad.  Your 3-hour train excursion begins at the Wappocomo Station in Romney, situated next to a charming homestead and a sprawling view of the mountains.  Enjoy the sounds of vintage diesels as they lead you through beautiful pastures and farms dating back to the 1700s.  As you wind along the South Branch of the Potomac River, you’ll enter a visually-striking gorge known as “The Trough”.  One of the most scenic spots along the South Branch, the Trough is the eastern home of our magnificent national symbol, the American Bald Eagle.  These majestic birds soar high above in their natural habitat, undisturbed by the low rumblings of the occasional train and the passengers who have come for a sighting.  Don’t be surprised to see these superb flyers swooping overhead in pursuit of prey or gliding gently across the blue mountain skies as if to flaunt their supremacy of the air.  Bring your cameras and binoculars for a great outing!  History and scenic beauty combine for an awesome travel experience with Gunther Tours and the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad.  A delicious turkey lunch consisting of mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, rolls and butter, dessert and beverage are included during your excursion today.  Note:  A rest stop will be made en route Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad, and a fast food stop will be made on the return trip home.  (L)
