Hit the rails this holiday season with a special train ride through the Hoosac Valley aboard the Berkshire Scenic Railway! The restored, vintage railway is offering both their popular Tinseliner and Mistletoe & Martini Cabaret holiday train rides through December!
It may be hard to believe that we’re already talking about the holidays but the results are in and there’s no denying it.
Fall has arrived, Halloween has passed, and we’re officially in the holiday season through the end of the year. It is time for skiing, skating, hot cocoa, shopping, and making lasting memories with friends and family.
One truly special way to celebrate the season is with a holiday train ride through the scenic Hoosac Valley aboard the Berkshire Scenic Railway.
Hoosac Valley Train Rides
The Berkshire Scenic Railway has been offering scenic and special seasonal train rides between Adams and North Adams, MA since 2016. The round trip journey takes you through the Hoosac Valley along the beautiful Hoosac and Greylock mountain ranges. Passengers enjoy the ride in real comfort aboard restored, vintage train cars, pulled by a real vintage train engine, on restored and upgraded track.
The train station is located in Adams, MA at the Adams Visitor Center: 3 Hoosac Street. Adams is about 40 minutes from our Berkshires bed and breakfast, Applegate Inn, but the drive is lovely and goes quickly.
You’ll find lots to see and do in the Adams area and along the way, too. Mount Greylock, Greylock Glen, MASS MoCA, the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail, Herman Melville’s Arrowhead, the Berkshire Museum, Natural Bridge State Park, and more. You could easily make a day of it and we’d love to help plan your itinerary, if you’d like.
