Train Rides Return to the Berkshires: On-Track for Summer 2015
Vintage Budd RDC #6126 receives new a wheel set.
Work continues to restore fun and educational train rides to the Berkshires. Operations are anticipated to begin Summer, 2015 and will be offered on weekends and Federal holidays.
The Hoosac Valley Service will be an 8-mile, round trip operating between North Adams and Renfrew, MA (just north of downtown Adams).
Project partners BSRM, MassDOT, City of North Adams and Town of Adams are working behind the scenes to establish the necessary infrastructure to operate trains safely and efficiently. This complex project is a "work-in-progress" and completion of Phase I is subject to many variables.
As the project develops, anticipated 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.
