Ohio Valley Railcars is happy to announce that the cancelled 2020 excursion on the Ashland Railway has been re-scheduled to Saturday, October 3, 2020. We will again be traveling north from Mansfield following the former Eire main line through Ashland, to Polk for a rest stop at the old Red Mill, then on to West Salem where we will turn the speeders. We will stop again in Polk for lunch break at the Mill. Fall colors should be at their best. The round trip is just short of 60 miles. Mentoring will be available with prior arrangement with the EC. Registration fee is $107 which includes lunches for 2. Additional lunches available at $9 each. There is no “official motel” but there are many in the Mansfield area. Additional information will follow with confirmation letter. Questions? Contact EC Phil Linne, 740-294-7328 or phil4grr@aol.com. Please do not contact Ashland Railway.
All operators must be current NARCOA members with current NARCOA insurance. Compliance with NARCOA rules and OVR policy required. Ashland Railway may have additional rules or forms for this event. High visibility vest or shirts, long pants and over the ankle boots strongly suggested. HyRail and large car operators NEW to this event please contact EC prior to registering.
We are very fortunate to be able to re-schedule our annual trip on the Ashland Railway and look forward to seeing you on the rails.

Should it become necessary to again cancel this event all registration fees will be returned in full.
