Storytime Express & Summer Excursions

Storytime Express this Saturday! 
Our first Storytime Express of 2016 will be this Saturday June 4, departing Ringoes Station at 10:45 AM! Tickets are now available - visit our website for details and tickets!

This train features a magic act, singing, story-telling, and the kids get a book to take home! Geared towards our younger pre-school aged guests, this train is the perfect way to introduce them to BR&W.

Introducing Locomotive #438 
This weekend's Summer Excursions will feature locomotive #438! 438 is the first locomotive owned by BRRHT, and this will be her first full weekend of excursion service! This diesel-electric SW-9 locomotive was built by GM Electro-Motive in April 1952 and generates 1,200 horsepower. Since acquiring it, BRRHT has made several repairs and improvements to ensure the locomotive is in perfect operating condition for years to come!

We need your help! Thanks to the support of our patrons and donors like you, our volunteers have been able to clear almost the entire line from Ringoes to Lambertville, and have rehabilitated over 1 mile of track! The photo above shows some of the results of our first track-work session of 2016 with our rebuilt tie-inserter. With your support we can get further faster and bring the train back to Lambertville!

By the way - this is the "before" view of that piece of railroad our volunteers just rebuilt this weekend! It's amazing what they can get done with your help!
