Dear BR&W Fans,
After a very busy Christmas season, we are taking a breather from train operations to do some of the important maintenance and support work that helps keep trains running the rest of the year. Our next public excursions will be the Easter Bunny Express in March, 2024. Tickets now available!
This April - May we will offer a limited number of Black River Limited excursions departing Ringoes Station. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy this classic excursion before summer arrives!
Some of you may have noticed that for the 2023 Christmas season we introduced a new feature to allow you to select specific seats when making a reservation. This was successful in ensuring groups were seated together and eliminating the stress of wondering whether you would find a seat. Best of all, we are able to offer this feature at no additional cost to you! This feature is now standard for all of our major events such as Easter Bunny Express, Pumpkin Trains, and North Pole Express. Some trains, such as Black River Limited, will retain our traditional open-seating format for now.
As you may have heard through the grapevine, our steam locomotive #60 is now undergoing its 1472 day inspection. This means that until further notice, all of our trains will be powered by one of our diesel-electric locomotives. Not to worry though, the work to return #60 to service is progressing right on schedule.
General reminder for your safety: BR&W railroad facilities are closed to the public except for ticketed guests during operating hours.
We appreciate your patronage and support; we look forward to welcoming you aboard the Easter Bunny Express!
