Events in July

Saturday, July 12: Trains at Twilight

SATURDAY ONLY! Many trolley companies across the
country once created popular amusement parks and picnic grounds to
entice more customers to ride the rails. The New York Museum of
Transportation recreates an evening at an old-time “trolley park” with
the happy sound of the calliope providing the background for authentic
trolley rides through the rolling hills of the Genesee Valley,
connecting to a diesel train at Midway for an extended ride down to the
Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum and return. Light
refreshments will be available to complete your evening out! SPECIAL HOURS 4:00 PM. to 9:00 P.M. SATURDAY. No reservations needed. Adults $10.00, Youth (3-17), Seniors (65+) $8.00

Sunday, July 20: Baseball Day Trolley and Train Rides

What’s more American than trains and basebal? From teams
traveling from city to city, to baseball fans taking the train to the
game, these two American traditions have been intertwined for more than
100 years. Kids won’t want to miss a visit from Spikes, the mascot of
our home town Rochester Red Wings.
Trolleys will meet diesel trains at Midway for the continuation of the
ride to Industry. Enjoy a 2-mile round trip trolley excursion that
connects to a diesel train, linking the New York Museum of
Transportation (NYMT) with the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad
Museum’s country depot and railroad equipment collection. Enjoy the only
combined trolley and diesel operation in New York State! Ticket
includes admission to both museums. No reservations needed. Adults $10.00, Youth (3-17), Seniors (65+) $8.00
