Tinseliner 2017 - An American Christmas Train

Ride in style aboard the TINSELINER, offering a fond look back at Christmas in America during the 1950's, when railroads took great pride in getting people home for the holidays and passengers dressed up in their best travel clothes for the journey. 

The Tinseliner experience features a 1950’s living room vingnette to pose for pictures and a 90-minute train ride aboard our vintage 1955 all-stainless steel Budd Rail Diesel Car with a visit to a traditional Christmas tree lot. At the tree lot, trees can be tagged for later pick up and enjoy hot chocolate by a warm fire. Our tree lot is sponsored by the volunteers from PopCares, a local charity that supports cancer patients.

Expect a visit from Father Christmas himself who will have a small gift for each child on-board. Come share some holiday cheer with our all-volunteer staff and train crew. After your ride, be sure to visit our Welcome Coach which features train themed merchandise for the perfect Christmas gift for that train afficiando in your family! 

All trains will depart from our new Adams boarding location at the Adams Visitors Center, 5 Hoosac Street, Adams, MA. Pre-purchased tickets are available for pick-up at our adjacent Welcome Coach & Gift Shop. Walk-up sales are limited; please purchase on-line and avoid disappointment!
