Travel Back in Time with Steam in the Valley

Steam in the Valley is an annual tradition at Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. CVSR partners with Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society  to bring the historic Nickel Plate Road Steam Locomotive No. 765 to the Valley for an unforgettable experience.

Steam in the Valley will take place on September 3, 10-12 and 17-19.

This is a limited opportunity to ride the train while being powered by a historical steam locomotive. Passengers will have the opportunity to deboard the train and view a once-in-a-lifetime run by of the high-stepping, fourteen-wheeled, time machine that stands 15 feet tall and weighs 404 tons.

Steam Weekends

Departures for this 2-and-a-half hour excursion take place from Rockside Station on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Akron Northside Station on Sundays at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Each ride includes the opportunity to deboard the train for a special photo opportunity with two run-bys.

Night Ride with Steam Locomotive No. 765

Join us for an exclusive nighttime photo session excursion on Friday, September 3 and Saturday, September 18. The train will depart from Rockside Station at 7:30 p.m. and take passengers on a three-and-a-half-hour round trip. Upon deboarding halfway through the trip, the engine will be stationary; and the area will have special lighting, so ticketed passengers have optimal shooting conditions for a rare nighttime photo of No. 765.

Tickets range from $25-$65, depending on seating class
