Diesel Train with Cabooses

A diesel-powered train departs R&GV’s Industry Depot

Journey back to a time when the train was the only way to travel. At one time, five different railroad companies served Rochester directly, along with a number of trolley and electric railway lines. Our museum is home to more than forty different examples of diesel and steam locomotives, passenger and freight cars, cabooses, work equipment, and many hundreds of tools, artifacts and more.

A visit to the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum is a wonderful way to spend a day with your family. What other museum lets you climb aboard and ride the exhibits? Enjoy a fun train ride aboard a real caboose. Our museum grounds are home to a number of historic vintage railroad cars on display. You’ll see that freight and passenger trains come in all different shapes and sizes. After your train ride, there’s time to roam our grounds and enjoy the sights and sounds of railroading. Pack a picnic and make a day of it! We’re glad you came to visit us.

    The Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum can trace its roots back to 1937 as the Rochester Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. Since our museum was established in 1971, we have preserved more than 40 pieces of historic railroad equipment along with our 1909 Erie Railroad passenger station to bring Rochester's rich railroading heritage to life.
