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.
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!
Senior (65+): $10.00
