When you reach the beautiful little mountain town of Andrews, NC proceed to the Historic Andrews Depot at 345 Locust Street. To start on your scenic rail tour, head around to the track side of the building to the ticket office. There you can book a tour on the spot, or check in for a reservation you've already made. Before boarding you will sign a waiver for each member of your group. Please be sure to be at the Depot 30 minutes before your reservation time. It's important to remember that your tour will last approximately 2 1/2 hours.
Once you have settled into your seat, be sure to pay close attention to the attendant for ride instructions - safety of our riders is our number one priority.
Now it's time to relax and enjoy the ride aboard North Carolina's First RailBike Tour, and don't forget to have your camera ready for the 5-mile trip to the Historic Valley River Tunnel. Take in the views from our beautiful valley that offers you the opportunity to experience beautiful mountains, forests, and abundant wildlife. You'll see crystal clear mountain rivers and streams as you cross Historic open deck railroad bridges on your trip to the tunnel. Once there you'll have about 1/2 hour to check out the tunnel (which was hand carved by workers from Southern Railway in 1894) and the surrounding area. Please take care on your stroll as the terrain can get steep and rocky.
After your break, you will re-embark for the 5-mile trip back to Andrews, and we're sure you'll see things you missed on the trip out, so don't forget that camera!
