About Us
BR&W has been offering family friendly trains and events in Hunterdon County, NJ for over 50 years. We are staffed by a dedicated group of volunteer railroaders of all ages and walks of life. Our common interest and bond is a love of history, railroading, and a determination to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to experience old fashioned steam railroading right here in the heart of New Jersey.
Our organization, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corp. is currently involved in many projects, including restoration of several of our historic passenger coaches dating from the 1920's. Most significantly, we have undertaken to re-open BR&W's railroad line connecting Ringoes and Lambertville, NJ. Our volunteer track crew recently finished repairs on the first half mile of track as we push to begin service to WoodsEdge farm about 2.5 miles south of Ringoes. This will allow us to begin offering new and exciting trains and events to WoodsEdge, while our crews continue working their way south to Lambertville!
