Potomac Eagle

Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad is a heritage railroad based in Romney, West Virginia.


The railroad operates excursion trains over a former Baltimore and Ohio Railroad line that runs from Green Spring to Petersburg. The West Virginia State Rail Authority (SRA) owns the line and freight service is provided by the South Branch Valley Railroad.


The Potomoc Eagle Scenic Railroad's excursion trains run from Romney to Moorefield with occasional longer trips to Petersburg. All trains use diesel locomotives.


A highlight of the trip is passage along the South Branch Potomac River through "The Trough", an area noted for bald eagle sightings.
