 Hocking Valley Scenic Railway.
 October 27, 2019

Ohio Valley Railcars invites you to participate in riding the 23 + round trip mile
Hocking Valley Scenic Railway. We will ride the railroad once in the morning,
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. 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, which you should complete and return mail to the
coordinator prior to the run. This will facilitate a timely departure on the excursion
day. The run fee includes lunch and caboose train for 2 adults. If you have extra
passengers, there is an extra fee. Limit of 25 cars. No pets.
