About Us:

The Hocking Valley Scenic Railway is a non-profit railroad. Its mission is the preservation, restoration and operation of historic railroad equipment for the education and entertainment of the general public. All trains are run by volunteers who are members of the railway.

Founded in 1972, Hocking Valley Scenic Railway offers diesel-powered rides aboard vintage equipment. Take a leisurely ride back in time along the Hocking River and through the rolling hills of Southeastern Ohio. Choose between seating in our 1920s commuter coaches, open air cars (weather permitting), 1940 air-conditioned B&O coach or an air-conditioned bi-level car built in 1970. Our primary diesel locomotive, GP7 No. 5833, was built in October of 1952.

The route we operate over, between Nelsonville and Logan, was once a part of the original Hocking Valley Railway’s Athens Branch. The railway merged into the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway in 1930. The Hocking Valley Scenic Railway was able to purchase the current route in 1985, as C&O sold off some of its less-used track.
