A unique excursion through a unique landscape
Your 2½-hour excursion begins at historic 1892 Essex station. The first part of your trip is behind one of our steam locomotives—two of only 100 steam locomotives in service in the U.S.! That’s down from 180,000 steam locomotives in the heyday of steam. Connect with the Becky Thatcher riverboat at Deep River Landing for a scenic journey through the Connecticut River Valley and discover one of “the last great places on Earth.” The train then returns you to Essex Station. Rain or shine.
