August 16 – Diesel Days

August 16, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

OUR MOST POPULAR WEEKEND EVENT IS BACK! Railroads have been a vital part of our nation’s success for more than 150 years, thanks to continuous expansion and innovation. One of those innovations is the diesel locomotive, which has been the backbone of the industry since the 1940s. From the earliest switch engines to today’s high-horsepower thoroughbreds, the diesel locomotive has been essential to the growth of American railroads. These kings of the rails come in all sizes, and the collection of the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum gives visitors a close-up look. Tour the engineer’s cab, learn what makes a diesel go, and how they are able to generate so much power. See, hear, and ride behind several different types of diesel locomotives under power.

Enjoy a mile-and-a-half round trip train ride through our museum grounds. Tour displays and trains at both ends of the ride. Ask about our CAB PASS to ride in the locomotive with the engineer! Trains depart every half-hour from Industry Depot.

Purchase tickets upon arrival. No reservation required, seats available first come, first served.

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.
