ABOUT THE HVSR
The Hocking Valley Scenic Railway is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1972 for the restoration, maintenance and operation of historic railroad equipment for the entertainment and education of the general public.
WHAT OUR VISITORS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE!
Since 1972, the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway has been entirely managed, operated, and maintained by volunteer members. If you have an interest in historic preservation and interpretation, we have a place for you! Our friendly volunteers have helped make memories for thousands of families over the last 40+years — you can be one of us! And if you’re not local to Nelsonville, that’s okay — you wouldn’t be alone! We have many volunteers from up to a two-hour drive away that help out consistently. Please consider joining today!
The Hocking Valley Scenic Railway has been all volunteer-operated for over forty years. You can be a part of history! There’s always a need for car hosts, brakemen, conductors, depot staff, shop personnel, track maintainers and more! No prior railroad experience is required. With your willingness to learn, we can train you right from your experience and skill level.
Even though we are entirely self-funded through ticket sales, there’s only so far we can go with volunteer labor and tickets. To accelerate our restoration and maintenance projects to help preserve railroad history and make for an even greater experience to our visitors, monetary (and even tool and equipment) donations are always welcome! We are a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, so all donations are tax-deductible! Please consider donating today, and we thank you in advance!
