November Private Dome Car Excursions

November 10 @ 8:00 am - November 13 @ 5:00 pm

In order to celebrate Amtrak’s return to Roanoke, the Virginia Museum of Transportation will be operating a series of private railcar excursions between Washington, DC and Roanoke. These trips will use a luxurious dome car and feature full meal service, beer and wine. We are thrilled to have Amtrak back in Roanoke. All proceeds will go toward supporting 611’s winter maintenance.

Private railcar trips allow the museum to offer some amenities that aren’t possible during the regular excursions including wine, beer as well as more luxurious meal service. We are selling these trips as one-ways only. This allows guests to choose what type of trip works best for their travel. You may want to ride down to Roanoke Friday evening and return Saturday, Sunday or even Monday. Another delightful option would be to rent a car on your return and drive the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are endless options!

In order to book a round trip, you will need to buy two separate one way tickets. This is not a steam powered journey. If you choose to spend the night you will need to make hotel reservations separate from booking this ticket.

Only 24 seats will be sold on this trip! Food, drinks, and a seat in the dome included.

Dome Class: $225. One Way. Washington, DC (WAS) -Roanoke, VA (RNK).
Dome Class: $225. One Way. Roanoke, VA (RNK) – Washington, DC (WAS)
