Stuart's Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio presents the Summer Wine Express on the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway!! Enjoy some wine and cheese and other treats while taking a ride through the Hocking Valley. All proceeds benefit Stuart's Opera House. The coach car is a renovated historic train car with cushioned bench seats. Relive a little railway history. First Class features a more modern experience with airline-style seats, and a complimentary Stuart's Opera House wine glass is included for first class ticket buyers. You may pick up your tickets after 6:00pm at the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway depot, which is located at 33 Canal Street in Nelsonville. It’s on the other side of the tracks, behind the train, so if you see the train, you’re almost there! The ride will take approximately an hour and a half. Wine will be served throughout the trip, and your complimentary box of cheese, bread and other treats will be served once the train is underway. Feel free to bring along your own food, but outside alcohol is prohibited by our liquor license. Water and soda will be available for those who want to support the Opera House but would rather not drink, or are the designated driver.
