Foliage Train to Make Stop in Charleston

The Autumn Colors Express has announced that it will make a stop in Charleston, West Virginia, during its Oct. 25-27 excursions.

Formerly known as the New River Train, the train will be stopping in West Virginia’s capital city for the first time in 30 years.

Previously, the New River Train stopped in St. Albans, located 12 miles west of Charleston.

Rail Excursion Management Company, which is operating the excursion in West Virginia between Huntington and Hinton, said it has sold about 35 percent of the 4,000 available seats.

Most of the sales have been to residents of Ohio and West Virginia.

Adam Auxier, president of Rail Excursion Management, said ticket sales have been steady for the Saturday excursions compared to Sunday while a Friday trip is showing promise.

Most of the tickets sold have been in coach class but the most expensive seats, chairman’s class, also has seen brisk sales.
