ride the black river limited this summer!
Updated April 21, 2022
Dear BR&W Fans,
This April we had the privilege of hosting many of you for our spring photo event, and even more of you aboard our Easter Bunny Express. It was quite exciting for steam locomotive #60 to make a rare appearance on our Easter trains!
Due to the evolving circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and CDC guidance, we have updated our COVID-19 policy to remove the requirement that our guests wear masks on board our trains. This change is effective immediately. Click here for more information.
With May just around the corner, we're preparing for the return of our summer trains, known as the "Black River Limited". They'll be running on May 14, then most Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Click "Schedule & Tickets" near the top of this page for details. The schedule has been posted through June, but we're still adding dates for the remainder of the summer.
We're very excited to announce the return of RailFest this June 11-12 with a very special feature. For your convenience, we've adjusted the train schedule so that trains will depart Ringoes & Flemington every 45 minutes. This is twice the frequency from the last time we ran this event, when you may have had to wait up to 90 minutes for your train! We are accomplishing this by doing something not seen at Black River since the early 1970's: we're running two passenger trains at the same time, passing each other midway between Flemington and Ringoes! When you purchase your ticket you will choose the time you wish to depart Flemington. Then, you may choose to return from Ringoes to Flemington on any train you wish, so you can decide how much time to stay at Ringoes and enjoy the festivities.
