Overview

Depart from the historic frostburg depot on our custom railbikes as we coast on a downhill grade the entire length of the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad from Frostburg to the Cumberland station. Enjoy the spectacular fall foliage and Mountain Maryland views as you effortlessly glide to the Queen City before climbing aboard a historic Western Maryland Scenic Railroad standard coach passenger car for the climb back up the mountain pulled by historic diesel locomotives.

Dress appropriately, our tours run rain or shine. You may have a half hour layover between railbiking and the departure, use this time to visit the attractions at Canal Place or the C and O canal tow path visitor center.
