The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad offers a variety of scenic, dining, and specialty excursions throughout the year. Individual and group rates are available for the Mountain Limited, our scenic excursion, as well as Evening Paradise Dinner Trains on Saturday evenings. Also available throughout the year are various specialty and holiday excursions.
Despite a landslide that occurred along Western Maryland Scenic Railroad tracks, WMSR will adhere to its 2016 schedule.
Operations will continue with a change to the usual route. Excursions will depart eastward from the Cumberland Station. This will provide guests the opportunity to view the WMSR Shop, where our heritage equipment is restored, maintained, and housed. This is the current site of the C&O 1309 restoration. The train will then head west, traveling past the Cumberland Station to Woodcock Hollow. Guests will have the opportunity to see the most notable landmarks along the route, including Brush Tunnel and Helmstetter’s Curve.
The section of land where the landslide occurred in early 2016 must be stabilized before safe passage can resume to Frostburg. It is the priority of WMSR and the government agencies involved to ensure everyone’s safety.
WMSR would like to thank Allegany County and the surrounding community, as well as its guests, for their continued support. As we look forward to our return to Frostburg, we will continue to provide our guests with fun, memorable experiences aboard WMSR.
