   Welcome to the only Web site dedicated to the Hocking Valley Railway, once the largest independent railroad of Ohio.  The Hocking, from it's inception in 1864 as the Mineral Rail Road, was a major contributor to Ohio's development as an industrial center.

   Within this section of the World Wide Web lies the largest online concentration of information devoted to the original Buckeye Route.  Maintained by Chris Burchett, he welcomes your contributions, input and feedback.  Anything you may have regarding the Hocking Valley -whether it be from its earliest days right up to what has become of its infrastructure and equipment - is greatly welcomed.

   Thank you very much for taking the time to use this Web site.  Every effort is made to ensure the highest accuracy is attained and maintained throughout each and every page of this site.  Please help continue our goal.  It may be well near eighty years since the Hocking passed from existence, but it's memory lives on here.

Dedicated to the men and women of the Hocking Valley Railway
