The Highlights

Join the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum and experience autumn in the Berkshires in a way you can't enjoy by car! Views from the train include the Mount Greylock and Hoosac Ranges. 

The train ride is an approximate one-hour, round trip and features a live narration pointing out historic and other interesting facts about the beautiful Hoosac Valley in northern Berkshire County of Western Massachusetts. 

The train rides feature BSRM's vintage, self-propelled Budd Rail Diesel Car - just like the ones that once brought passengers to the Berkshires from Boston and New York City in the 1950's through the end of rail passenger service. 

The Details

Trains depart from North Adams Station behind the Brien Center Building on American Legion Drive. Park in the Brien Center parking lot. Look for the green caboose. GPS address is 98 Crowley Avenue which is located off Ashland Street/Route 8A, behind Oasis Plaza. There are signs at the driveway entrances you will see before you can see the trains. 

Tickets are available for pre-purchase by credit card or on the day of your visit. The ticket office is located in the North Adams Welcome Coach, located at North Adams Station - it is the dark green traditional passenger car parked on the tracks next to the green caboose.  DUE TO THE POPULARITY OF OUR FALL TRAIN RIDES WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU PRE-PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS BEFORE YOUR VISIT

Adults: $12.00
Senior (65+): $10.00

Be sure to take time browsing inside the Welcome Coach which features historical photos of the places you'll see during your journey and exclusive Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum Hoosac Valley Train Ride merchandise that includes hats, t-shirts, mugs, postcards, key chains and more for all ages! Dining & other regional cultural attraction information is also available in the Welcome Coach.
