The Valentine Express Dinner Train will roll through Petersburg on Feb. 9 featuring a West Virginia wine and food tasting followed by a three-course meal, served on a train ride winding through the foothills of the Potomac Valley.

The train, a 1950s-era refurbished Amtrak car with a diesel engine, will make a two-and-a-half-hour trip, departing Petersburg at 4p.m., turning around once it reaches Moorefield.

Festivities begin at the South Side Depot in Petersburg with a West Virginia wine and food tasting from 2-4 p.m., featuring local delicacies and wines, including the popular hot pepper jelly and blue cheese and bacon dip. The train ride will have a three-course Italian dinner.

"The Valentine Express Dinner Train kicks off our 2013 train season for Grant County," said Hanna Weaver, executive director of the Grant County Convention and Visitors Bureau. "The dinner train ride will definitely make for a romantic evening. The views along the South Branch of the Potomac River are breathtaking, and the West Virginia food and wine make the evening extra special."

Tickets are $60 per person, available at304-257-9264 or visit www.southsidedepot.com.
