The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad on Thursday resumed rail service with the federal shutdown over.
The railroad offers excursions through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park from Akron and Independence Wednesdays through Sundays. Fall foliage time is an especially busy time for the railroad.
The tracks are owned and maintained by the National Park Service. The nonprofit railroad owns the engines and rail cars.

The park service announced late Wednesday that the 33,000-acre federal park between Akron and Cleveland and its trails, visitor centers and programs was again open.
