Don’t miss your opportunity to climb aboard these kings of the rails during Diesel Days at the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum on September 15 and 16.
See, hear, and ride behind several kinds of restored vintage diesel locomotives. Your mile-and-a-half round-trip train ride disembarks at the museum’s restoration shop. Enjoy a self-guided tour of our unique exhibits as you visit New York State’s largest collection of historic trains.
Take a tour of the engineer’s cab and discover what it takes to make these massive machines move. Upgrade your ticket to a Cab Pass and ride up front with the engineer!
