The Tygart Flyer Scenic Train is a great way to appreciate splendid scenery by rail, all while following the path of two marvellous rivers that flow through Barbour County. The round trip journey takes approximately four hours, and the final destination is the High Falls of Cheat: a 150-foot-wide, 18 feet high waterfall. Because the landmark is situated in a remote part of the region, a trip on the Tygart Flyer Scenic Train offers Barbour County visitors chances to get a taste of some of the natural beauty that has attracted people to the area for generations. An S-curve tunnel and a canyon that descends 1,500 feet deep are just a couple of many other sights to enjoy.

The train fare includes an "all-you-can-eat" sandwich buffet, a cookie for dessert, and refreshing non-alcoholic beverages. For a reasonable additional fee, guests can also ride in the vintage 1922-era Pullman parlour car located in the rear of the train.  It offers especially spectacular views from the comfort of supportive armchairs. Because the train's route spans 46 miles, it's an excellent opportunity to see some of the picturesque scenery that surrounds Barbour County with all the luxuries of a relaxing train ride.
