PENINSULA, Ohio - The scenic train will be running again this weekend in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This is the opening weekend, Jan. 18 and 19, 2014 for Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad’s (CVSR) National Park Scenic Winter-Spring excursions
The winter-spring schedule for the Scenic Excursions is limited and will vary in January. This is due to bridge repairs and construction. January through mid-March will include departures from the Akron’s Northside Station, the Brecksville Station and Peninsula Depot. Mid-March to April 27, service will be offered between Akron Northside and Peninsula.
Rockside Station and Canal Visitor Center will be closed until May 3, when the full track re-opens. From March 22 through April 27, Brecksville and Boston Mills stations will also be closed.
The Scenic Railroad has some unique programs and special events scheduled this year. They include Ales on Rails – beer-tasting excursions, wine-tasting excursions, Dinner Trains, The Easter Bunny Express and more. Bike Aboard! service will start in May with the opening of the full track.
Brunch along the Cuyahoga will be a part of the weekend offerings on board. This 5-course brunch is served in one of CVSR’s newly remodeled dining cars while traveling through the National Park.
Scenic train excursions are offered twelve months of the year. Two family favorite events returning in 2014 are The Polar Express™, Day Out With Thomas™.
