Salute to Veterans Train Rides
September 19 @ 10:00 am - September 20 @ 4:00 pm
We salute the sacrifice put forth by our military veterans with this special event, in cooperation with the Black Lions 2-28 Vietnam Living History Group. Visit exhibits and encampments at both ends of the ride as you tour our museum exhibits. Visitors will enjoy historic weapons firing demonstrations and other living history representations during their visit. Veterans and Active Military ride FREE.
Your tour begins at our historic 1909 Erie Railroad train station at Industry. Check-in with the ticket agent and enjoy a self-guided tour of the exhibits prior to your ride. Listen for the conductor to call “ALL ABOARD” and enjoy a fun mile-and-a-half round trip through our bucolic museum grounds. Disembark at our Restoration Shop to tour our collection of historic railroad equipment. Peek behind the scenes to see how we preserve Rochester’s rich railroading history for future generations to enjoy. After your trip, enjoy our displays and museum grounds at Industry Depot. Pre-packaged snacks, soft drinks, and water will be available for purchase. Don’t forget to visit our museum gift shop, stocked with railroad souvenirs for train buffs of all ages!
