Dear BR&W Fans,
BR&W Railroad is open! We are now preparing for our Pumpkin Trains and Sunset Special (October) and North Pole Express (November-December). Tickets now available for all remaining 2020 trains!
Several new policies and procedures will in place, for the protection of both our Staff and Guests. Among these changes, we have launched touchless ticketing with FareHarbor, which also decreases the service fees for most transactions!
Our Steam Team is back to work, prepping steam locomotive #60 for service. Due to the COVID-19 situation, they are getting a much later start on this work than they would prefer. But don't worry, these guys are good at what they do! We are tentatively planning to return to steam operation for Easter 2021.
Other projects around the railroad are underway, including improvements to some of our coaches, not to mention all the preparations necessary to support this "new normal" we're all experiencing.
Please note that until further notice, only on-duty Staff and ticketed Guests are permitted on BR&W property, including the platform at Flemington Station. The Ringoes yard / station / museum area is completely closed to guests. All Guests will begin their visit at Flemington for the duration of 2020.
Please carefully review our complete COVID-19 policy here. There are several important (temporary) changes in place that you should be aware of BEFORE planning your trip to BR&W. We can't wait to see you at the railroad!
