ENT. Durbin RocketThe Sheriff casts a glance at the boarding passengers. He’s wondering if this trip will go well. His reputation is at stake, you know. Surely, it won’t be another train robbery!

You won’t know the outcome of this Mountain Rail Adventure on the Durbin Rocket unless you’re there to ride the train the weekend of August 9 and 10.

That’s when a cast of characters from the Wild West will be onboard all four departures of the Durbin Rocket to ensure that, if a robbery takes place, all will be safe from the lawbreaking band of men on horseback.

The Durbin Rocket, the signature steam-driven train of the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad, located in Durbin, will depart the Depot at 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Reservations are recommended. 866-998-7005 or online at
