Museum sponsors train ride to view bald eagle

September 21, 2007

The Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum is sponsoring a train ride along the Potomac River where the American bald eagle is known to nest.

But to get to the train ride, you need to take a bus trip first.

Bus transportation will depart for Romney, W.Va., at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21, from the Park 'n' Ride lot adjacent to the Motor Vehicle Administration on Col. Henry Douglas Drive off Sharpsburg Pike (Md. 65), just south of Interstate 70. Participants will return to Hagerstown by bus at approximately 6 p.m.

Once in Romney, riders will embark on the Potomac Eagle Dinner Train, which operates from Romney and travels along the south branch of the Potomac River and returns to Romney. First Class seating and dining will be provided for the train ride along the river where participants can look for eagles and enjoy the autumn leaves. Seating will be in historic restored dining or lounge cars equipped with air conditioning.
