The Details of Our Scenic Rail Tours

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 check in for a reservation you've already made, or if you would like to walk in, please call ahead to see if seats are available. 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 hours.

 

What to expect

  • Our RailBikes are pedal motor-assisted, similar to e-bikes.
  • Riders must be at least 8 years of age.
  • There is a 300lb weight limit (per person) on the RailBikes.
  • Remember you will be on an open air Rail Tour.
  • Bring something to drink, and a snack.
  • When you arrive, go to the Ticket Window and sign in – this is when you will sign your waiver.
  • You will then be escorted to the Rail Tour by our staff to be seated for very important SAFETY instructions.
  • Groups with an odd number of riders may find that they will need to be split into more than one RailBike to even out ridership numbers. Please call if this is the case with your group, to discuss options.
  • RailBike rider parties that are larger than 4 will be seated on consecutive RailBikes.
  • Should there be inclement weather, such as lightning, heavy rain or storms, you will be able to re-book for another day, or if necessary, cancel your trip for a full refund.

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 down to the river 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!
