Remarks & Notes 
The fourth and final run of the 2018 New River Train crosses the calm New River on track 1 at Hawks Nest at a brisk 10 miles per hour before picking up speed for an on-time arrival at Hinton for their annual Railroad Days celebration. Unfortunately, the 2018 series of the New River Train will end up being the final run after 52 years of charter trips due to Amtrak's new policies on private car movements and charter trains, and several unrecoverable increases in costs over the past few years. More information on the cancellation can be found on the Trains News Wire article by contributor Chase Gunnoe at http://trn.trains.com/news/news-wire/2019/02/26-west-virginias-new-river-train-wont-run-in-2019/

The GE Genesis series are well known for being Amtrak's locomotive. With confirmation of retirement from Amtrak themselves, their time is limited. Now is your chance to catch them before the chargers arrive!
