Diesel Days 2017

Powerful diesel locomotives are the backbone of the modern railroad industry. From humble yard switchers to high-horsepower road engines, these locomotives have ruled the rails since their widespread introduction the 1940s. 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 16-17.

See, hear, and ride behind several kinds of restored vintage diesel locomotives. The highlight of this year’s event is the reactivation of No. 20, built in 1949 by American Locomotive Co. in Schenectady, N.Y., and donated to our museum by the Livonia, Avon & Lakeville Railroad in 2016.

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!

    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.
