We appreciate any and all donations! Through generous support, in addition to the great support we receive through ticket sales, we have been able to restore passenger cars, diesel locomotives and, just recently, our steam locomotive!
We are always willing to accept monetary donations. And since we are a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, all donations are tax-deductible!

Currently, the only way we can accept monetary donations is via check. We are working on getting a system put together to allow for online donations and crowd-funding options.

In the meantime, if you would like to give to the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway to help us continue our preservation efforts, please make checks payable to:

Hocking Valley Scenic Railway
And mail to:
P.O. Box 427
Nelsonville, Ohio 45764

If there is a specific project or area of operation you would like to specifically help fund, please indicate that in the Memo area of your check.
If you have a piece of equipment you are interested in donating (we currently do have a need for a good condition hi-rail truck, among other things), please email us at and let us know what you have, any details as possible, and return contact information.

We greatly appreciate your support!
