Step back in time aboard the last operating steam train excursion in New York State, an authentic operating short line railroad.

We hold the distinction of being one of the last "common carriers" - running freight and passenger trains weekly. "Welcome Aboard the Train to Yesterday . . ."

With an "All Aboard", the whistle blows, and the whoosh of the air brakes releasing can be heard.

For the most part the trip is through the countryside and farmlands that have remained virtually unchanged since the line was originally laid in the 1880's.

Whistling once again for the crossing, the engine picks up speed, and before you know it, you are once again "buried" in nature.

This time, ride on the open gondola, which is now directly in front of the engine.

As the train climbs the hill, coming out of Curriers, listen to the enchanting sounds of the exhaust steam, as the engine chugs on.

Finally, arriving back in Arcade, watch as they uncouple the engine from the train.

Our regular excursions run every weekend from Memorial Day Weekend until the last full weekend of September.

The month of October is Fall Foliage month and we will be operating on an extended schedule which includes Fridays and 2 trains each day on the weekends.
