This June, the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum is sponsoring a special guided tour of historic rail operations in Utica and Cooperstown. The motorcoach tour will depart from Rochester on Saturday, June 6. Upon arrival at Utica, the tour group will enjoy a guided tour of the Utica Union Station presented by the Landmark Society. Following the tour, we will browse a railroad antique show and sale.

On Sunday, June 7, our motorcoach will transport our tour group to the Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley, where a special chartered train awaits us. We will visit with the volunteers of the C&CV to learn how they are preserving the heritage and history of this old Delaware & Hudson Railway branch line for future generations to enjoy.
