The Polar Express/Train Rides
Due to the large number of requests we are receiving, we must unfortunately remind our guests that Berkshire Scenic is not able to offer The Polar Express or any other substantial train ride experience in 2013. Train rides between Lenox and Stockbridge remain suspended due to the decision by the Housatonic Railroad Company to NOT renew an operating agreement with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation for operating tourist trains over their tracks. There are no plans to resume train rides between Lenox and Stockbridge. We thank everyone for their inquires and expression of hope that BSRM can resume offering family experiences such as The Polar Express.
Train Rides Return in 2014! Hoosac Valley Service: Adams to North Adams
Anticipated start date is Spring/Summer 2014. Planning, engineering and design work has progressed. This is a complicated and significant project to restore passenger rail service on the Adams Branch along with a shared right of way with a rail trail. Information will be announced as this exciting project further develops. Please follow our Facebook page for the latest updates.
Are you looking to get involved? BSRM is ON-TRACK and growing. We are specifically seeking volunteers to assist with grounds and building maintenance for Stockbridge Station and Lenox Station. We are always seeking interested folks who enjoy history to volunteer as tour guides and for those who want to get dirty, to volunteer to help with restoration and maintenance projects. We have a fleet of road vehicles, equipment and railroad equipment that needs to be maintained. Please CONTACT US if you are interested. You can volunteer as much or as little as you can - every little bit helps our all volunteer non-profit organization - and you get to have FUN! Come join us!
