2016 Lenox Museum & Hoosac Valley Train Ride Schedule
Visit our two locations for 2016 and learn about the rich railroading legacy in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts. BSRM offers fun, educational experiences for all ages in Lenox and North Adams. Please visit both of our locations and support our all-volunteer, non-profit organization.
10 Willow Creek Road (corner of Housatonic & Crystal Streets) Lenox, MA
Open Saturdays only, from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend, 10A-2P
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, donations are appreciated.
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, see the engine room, 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 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.
All admission fares help BSRM keep our historic station and equipment in a state of good repair!
