Ride the historic Essex Steam Train and Riverboat to take in the marvelous scenery of the Connecticut River Valley. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time when you board the old-fashioned steam train or hop aboard the riverboat. Taking a trip during autumn is especially popular since the fall foliage along the river is a breath-taking site. There are also opportunities for learning about locomotives with special programs designed to teach youngsters how to operate and maintain these vintage trains. If the spectacular scenery and the views weren’t enough, patrons can also take the special dinner train and enjoy a delicious four-course meal in one of the restored Pullman cars. Prime Rib, Rice PIlaf and Roasted Potatoes are some of the delicacies served on-board. Drinks like soda, beer and wine are also served along with the sumptuous fare. If you are looking to celebrate a special occasion or celebrate a romantic evening then certainly reserve a seat in historic Essex Steam Train.
