Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum is proud to announce that in partnership with the City of North Adams, Town of Adams, and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation fun train rides are coming back to the beautiful Berkshire Hills!
Operating between the historic communities of Adams and North Adams in the scenic footprint of Mount Greylock and the Hoosac Mountain Range, our new Hoosac Valley Service will feature a round trip train schedule, downtown-to-downtown service and popular special events for the whole family!
Stay tuned as the Hoosac Valley Service develops throughout 2014!
Update: July 10, 2015; Track Rehabilitation Has Begun!
Work continues to restore fun and educational train rides to the Berkshires! Train rides are not available yet, however we are working hard to build the necessary infrastructure to operate trains safely and efficiently. We are closer than ever! The Hoosac Valley Service will be an 8-mile, round trip operating between North Adams and Renfrew, MA (just north of downtown Adams). Planning is underway on Special Events and train operation schedule for late summer/fall/winter 2015. A schedule (timetable) will be announced as soon as possible.
Phase I is currently underway and consists of work that will rehabilitate the track for operation of both passenger and freight trains. This complex project is a "work-in-progress" and completion of Phase I is subject to many variables. As the project develops, train schedules, directions and other information will be provided.
In the meantime, please visit the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum's location in Lenox, MA featuring the historic Lenox Train Station, historic and technical exhibits, O-gauge model train layout and ride the Yard Jitney - featuring a guided tour of BSRM's rail yard with equipment displays and other educational exhibits.
