Leisurely ride through the valley

The Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad’s former VIA Rail (and before that Canadian National) FP9A 6540 is just a few minutes away from reaching the 156′ tall Bass Point Creek High Bridge with last Saturday’s lunch train.  The lunch train departs Saturdays at 11:00 AM for a 2+ hour journey through the Des Moines River Valley.  Basic excursions are operating daily at 1:30 PM, plus a 4:00 PM departure on Saturdays. Tickets are available at bsvrr.com, or by calling 1-800-626-0319.
