2015 Museum Schedule & Highlights
Welcome to the Berkshire's own railway museum! We are open 9am - 4pm, Saturdays only.
Visit historic Lenox Station, built in 1903 to serve the Berkshire's Gilded Age residents, experience the beautiful panoramic vista of October Mountain and Woods Pond and ride the Yard Jitney - a shuttle train up to our rail yard where you are guaranteed to learn something about the railroad and how it works! Lenox Station features historical & technical exhibits, a gift shop and an O-gauge model train display. Admission to Lenox Station is complimentary.
The Yard Jitney features a traditional, early 20th century passenger car and a vintage diesel-electric locomotive. The brief ride brings you into our working rail yard where a volunteer guide will provide you with a personalized tour and explanation of our equipment collection. Climb aboard a diesel-electric locomotive, experience the brakeman's view from a caboose cupola and appreciate the development of train control technology in Yokun Block Station, a replica of an original railroad building used in the Berkshires. Admission to the Yard Jitney/Yard Tour is $5.00.
Ever wonder how the engineer operates a locomotive? Experience a cab ride and ride with an engineer on the Yard Jitney! Locomotive Cab Rides are available for an additional $5.00 with admission to the Yard Jitney/Yard Tour.
BSRM is On-Track - traditional train rides return this summer!
Traditional train rides are anticipated to return to the Berkshires in July, 2015. BSRM's Hoosac Valley Service will offer an 8-mile, round trip experience between North Adams & Adams, MA. This project remains in development and all schedules are subject to change. Visit the Hoosac Valley Service website for the latest information, expected train schedule, directions and more! The Hoosac Valley service is a collaborative project with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, City of North Adams and Town of Adams.
BSRM is an all-volunteer, non-profit, living railroad museum. BSRM depends on donations from our members, volunteers, guests and community for operational funds. All donations go directly to preservation, restoration and operation of our historic buildings and equipment. Please follow us on Facebook for more information about our volunteer organization.
