Essex Steam Train
1 Railroad Ave, Essex, Ct, 06426
We have two coal-fired locomotives available to pull our collection of lovingly restored railroad cars. You will be swept away by the hiss of steam, the blast of the whistle, and the clickety-clack of the tracks. From the exciting "All Aboard" to the engineer checking the locomotive before the run, you will experience an authentic journey back to the days of steam. In the fall, the colors of New England are an unforgettable sight. The Steam Train fits right in with the cider, falling leaves, and cool snap in the air that makes autumn in New England so special. Or cap off a day of leaf peeping with a romantic ride on our Dinner Train.. You can also get a glimpse of man-made wonders - bridges, ferries, and river-front homes. Highlights include the historic Goodspeed Opera House and Gillette Castle. Throughout, we'll tell you about the history, natural wonders, and legends that abound in these waters
