The Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad, a 501 (c )( 3) not-for-profit organization. Donations are needed to help with the cost of bridge and track maintenance. The track, trestles, and Smoky River bridge were originally installed in 1887 by Rock Island Railroad.

ASVRR’s purpose is to preserve history by entertaining and educating visitors. To this extent the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad was formed in 1993. The excursion train has been operating since that time providing train rides not only for the general public but also for special groups, school field trips, dinner trains, birthday parties, weddings and reunions. ASVRR has restored the former ATSF Steam Locomotive #3415 and the 1887 Rock Island Depot and both are on the National Register of Historic Places.

ASVRR asks that you consider making a donation to help create the desired future for the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad and the Abilene/Dickinson County area. Your donation in this campaign will be used to upgrade our track which is in dire need of improvement and the donation is tax deductible.

By donating to our Capital Improvement Fund you will help the continuation of operation of the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad for many years into the future for those to enjoy who “Ride the Rails of History”.

Any financial assistance that you can provide will be deeply appreciated and will benefit our entire community and enhance an attraction that draws passengers from across this region.
