This very special Train Excursion is unique in that you actually travel through Hatfield McCoy Feud country. Not only will the winner get to enjoy this historic train ride, but also a relaxing stay at the Hilton Garden Inn of Pikeville complete with dinner for 2. We thought it would also be fitting to offer a meet and greet & photo op with the descendants of the famous feuding Hatfields and McCoys; Reo Hatfield and Ron McCoy. These two men, along with Bo McCoy, were involved in organizing and signing the treaty that officially ended the feud.
