The first BSF Vintage Train Fest will take place Nov. 10, at Oneida City Park after a 20-year absence. The event is free and open to the public.
The sound of a steam excursion train will once again chug along on the rails of the Norfolk-Southern main line to Oneida, trekking up the Cumberland Plateau. The trip will take train passengers through N-S’s famous Rathole Division, a section of rail that includes four tunnels and the high bridge at New River, about 300 feet above the river.
The excursion train, pulled by a 1904 vintage steam locomotive, will take 400 passengers to Oneida. Passengers will disembark at the park to visit and experience what Oneida and the northern Cumberland Plateau has to offer including arts and crafts vendors, a classic car cruise-in, live music entertainment, and other fall festivities.
