Cincinnati Group Offering Rare Mileage Trips

Cincinnati Scenic Railway has announced a series of rare mileage excursions that will operate in southwest Ohio through its new Ohio Rail Experience operation.

On May 19, the group will offer a trip over the former Detroit, Toledo & Ironton from Springfield to Lima.

Additional trips will run over former Baltimore & Ohio and Pennsylvania Railroad trackage now operated by various Genesee & Wyoming properties on May 20 and Sept. 2-3.

Cincinnati Scenic Railway also operates the Lebanon Mason Monroe Railroad in Lebanon.

“In our part of the country, passenger trains are slipping further into the history books and that’s a shame. It can be difficult to properly interpret this kind of history in a static museum,” said General Manager Will Gawin says. “For that reason, our team honestly believes what we are doing is important for historic preservation. Our goal is to deliver an experience worth remembering to communities that might have forgotten how enjoyable a train ride can be.”
