Welcome!  All aboar-r-rd for a trip back in time . . . on the Walkersville Southern.  Travel over track that the Pennsylvania Railroad originally built in 1872.  Come see our turn-of-the- century railroad station and tool house.  Ride in vintage 1920s passenger cars or on an open flatcar as your rail excursion runs past a 100-year-old lime kiln, and then out into picturesque Maryland farm country.  Whether it is a scenic excursion for the whole family or a romantic dinner for two, we have something for everyone.  You will find history and adventure on the Walkersville Southern.  We operate regular trains on weekends May through October, with charters and special trains all year. The regular excursion is about one hour and 10 minutes.
