I am an active member in the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway.  I became a member in 2005 after visiting and riding the train with my son and grandson in 2004.  The crew and members I met that day inspired me to join up and be a working volunteer.  The railroad's season runs from early spring (Easter Trains) to late in the year (Santa Claus Trains) and you can find out more by clicking this link  - HVSR.  All the photos you see here are mine unless otherwise noted.  Click on any to see a larger view.  Enjoy and become a member yourself!
