Thank you for your interest in the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. We will respond to your request as soon as possible. If your request is urgent, please call us at (240) 920-6273.


The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad departs at 11:30 AM every operating day with the exception of Sundays. Mountain Limited departs at 1 p.m. on Sundays. The round trip lasts approximately 2 1/2 hours. Reservations are recommended as trains can sell out. Reservations for First Class dining will not be accepted less than one week in advance of the excursion date. Reservations are required in October, our peak season. All rates will increase by $5 for the month of October. 

For those interested in taking advantage of the Great Allegheny Passage, we can accommodate transporting your bike for a small fee. Please call 240-920-6273 to make reservations with bicyles.
