For the first time since 1958, a passenger train excursion made its way through Pike County, KY, going from Grundy Va. to Devon Wv. The excursion is part of Norfolk Southern’s “21st Century Steam Program” and was operated by the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. Departing from Grundy, Virgina, this passenger train excursion traveled through the rugged and beautiful backwoods of Appalachia. Powered by a former Southern Railway 630 steam locomotive with diesel assistance, this historic train excursion proved to be a great success, with more than 3900 tickets sold. We at Pike County Tourism CVB wanted to share with you some of the memories our train excursion ride patrons captured in photograph. Rob Bolson was nice enough to share with us some of his photos from the train excursion, take a look.
