TRAVEL THROUGH TIME ON INDIANA’S MOST SCENIC RAILROAD
« on: April 08, 2010, 04:29:08 PM »
The Whitewater Valley Railroad (WVRR), an authentic, historic train offering recreational train excursions and events for its 37th operating season in 2010. Established in 1972, the WVRR is a non profit 501c3 railroad history organization. It is an operating railroad museum dedicated to the preservation of a historic branch line railroad, the restoration of railroad equipment, and to the conduct of railroad educational programs. The railroad is operated by trained volunteers and all proceeds are used to further the organization's mission.

Ride the Valley Flyer from Connersville to Metamora, Indiana, a restored canal town. Visit the working grist mill, restored canal and lock, operating replica horse drawn canal boat, historic covered aqueduct, and over 100 shops and restaurants during the 2 hour layover. Trains consisting of vintage equipment depart Connersville’s Grand Central Station at 12:01 pm on Saturdays, Sundays, and major holidays, May through October. This train will not operate June 18th through 28th, 2010 due to a Day Out With Thomas in Connersville.

Cost for these 33-mile round trip excursions is $20 for adults and $12 for children ages 2 to 12. Groups are welcome with group rates of 30 or more. Special school rates are also available. Grand Central Station is located at 455 Market St. in Downtown Connersville next to the County Courthouse.

Come to Connersville, Indiana and return to a time when the railroad moved the nation and the short line railroad was a small towns best friend.  The WVRR attracts passengers and railroad enthusiasts from all across the United States and Canada. Connersville is situated 65 miles from Cincinnati, Dayton, and Indianapolis, conveniently located in between the three metro areas.
