Trip Advisor For train enthusiasts!
Mar 18, 2015 by: Krista M from Westernport, Maryland
The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad is a trip back into history of the steam locamotives and provides a beautiful ride through Allegany County. It is not a long train ride but is long enough to satisfy adults and short enough for small children not to get bored. Both ends of the trip have cities that have lots of interesting sites to enjoy for the history and arts enthusiasts. Great restaurants in both cities too!

Trip Advisor Worth the time and money

The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad is worth the time and money for the trip. Make sure that you sit on the station side of the rail car - better view all the way to Frostburg. Great opportunity to ride a steam locomotive and see the scenery and learn a little Western Maryland history.

We took my grandsons on this steam engine train trip. The views of the mountains in Cumberland, MD are just beautiful. The train ends at the town of Frostburg, where there are several gift shop and snack restaurants.

Trip Advisor Do the North Pole Xpress

The North Pole Express is a really nice train (in December). Probably as close as you could get to an actual "Polar Express" experience. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the price. Great for small children.

What a wonderful experience to ride the WM Scenic Railroad, #734. Beautiful country to view. Excellent plan for a great day out!
