Hinton, which became a major rail hub in the late 19th century, is known for its annual Rail Road Days festival that includes live music, local arts and crafts and excursion train rides. Hinton City Railroad Museum located on Temple Street is filled with uniforms and artifacts from the early days of the C&O Railway, CSX and Amtrak. Stop in and see the model train exhibit and tools used during the railroad days of the 19th and 20th century. Located in downtown Hinton near the historic train station.

The Hinton station was built for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway in 1905 as a division terminal. The depot still stands. The station is in use and is registered in the Hinton National Register Historic District. When the station was built Hinton was a booming railroad town. The rail traffic was primarily coal. Hinton was named the county seat of Summers County when the C&O railroad donated the land for the Summers Co. Courthouse. As the division terminal for the C&O, Hinton’s population grew to more than 6000 with newspaper offices, a hospital, a hotel and the C&O that employed 100s.

This period of growth was short lived with the advent of diesel engines. The C&O / Seaboard merger of 1980 created CSX. Many yards and terminals were closed including Hinton. The town today features a large historical district full of architectural wonders. The once bustling train station is still up and running as an Amtrak station. Passengers depart and arrive in Hinton still today. Trains still run and the town has moved into the modern era. Today the city views itself as a living museum.

In recent times it has been proposed that the Railways become more strategic in the transportation of Gas and Oil commodities along with the resurgence in coal. As our economy becomes more focused on self sustaining resources the trains may become more important to the needs of America. The resourceful interest of modern times in producing energy, products and food on United States soil may soon revive the rail system as an essential transportation mode. All Aboard.
