Hello, Ben:

Stay on US Highway 340 until you reach Waynesboro.
There are several large bridges such as one at Overall
that if a train is near, make for a nice photo. There
are also station buildings at Luray and Shenandoah.
You can see much of Shenandoah from the town's street
that parallels the yard, but going onto NS property is

There's a railcar and some cast-iron roadway signs on
property near where the Buchanan station used to be.
The Buchanan Railcar Inn - (540) 254-9711 - 66 15th
St, Buchanan, VA is used for overnight lodging; see
its website at http://www.buchananrailcarinn.com/

I don't know of any other survivind station buildings
between Shenandoah and Roanoke. Does anyone else?

Good morning,

Subject: Sightseeing on the Shenandoah

I'm making my plans for this years convention trip to
Strasburg. I'll be coming up Interstate 81 most of
the way. I was wondering if you fine folks might
point out some points of interest along the way up the
Shenandoah Valley line. I will most likely follow the
line on my way back home on Sunday, and would like to
know some good places to visit and take photos. I
plan on visiting Boyce, and following the line south
from there.
