Celebrate National Train Day weekend with the only combined trolley and train ride in New York State. Rides begin at the New York Museum of Transportation and include a visit at the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum. Rides operate Sundays only, throughout the summer and fall seasons. Exhibits in the two museums include trolley cars, passenger and freight cars, a steam locomotive, and horse-drawn and motorized vehicles. A restored country railroad station, a large model railroad, and numerous exhibits, photos and artifacts bring transportation history to life.
The two museums and the rides between them are all included in one family-friendly admission. Rides depart every 30 minutes starting at 11:30 a.m., and no reservations are required. Unless otherwise directed, all tours begin at the New York Museum of Transportation, 6393 East River Road, West Henrietta, NY. We are only a few miles from Exit 11 on I-390, and just 20 minutes from downtown Rochester. Admission, including both museums and the ride between them: Adult $10.00; Seniors (65+) $8.00; Youth (3-17) $8.00.
The museums are run entirely by dedicated volunteers and are open Sundays only, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Weekday group visits can be arranged by appointment. For more details, please visit our new web site: www.rochestertrainrides.com or call (585) 533-1113.
