Just like in the old days, one can ride the rails for a couple of hours in the fall and enjoy the beauty of the rolling hills, full fall colors, and improvised music while riding the rails.

We rode this in October from Chester to the ski area near Ludlow. We are train enthusiasts and normally when it is a two hour ride, it's designed for kids and is usually out and back on flat tracks along a river and the train...More

We purchased tickets online and did enjoy the ride. Nice foliage in October. Don't remember a whole lot because it was last year, but we would return.

Two options for rides are available, took the southeastern route. Highlights of the trip include two cover bridges near the tracks. The crews' narration was not very exciting. This was a relaxing and scenic trip, well worth the visit.

We did the Chester to Rockingham ride. Very scenic and enjoyable. Foliage was just starting. Saw covered bridges and learned why they were covered.

We rode the Green Mountain Flyer from Chester to Ludlow and back to view the fall foliage. It was a fun experience with a friendly crew. The train ride doesn't offer too many open vistas to view the countryside. Mostly the view is blocked by...More

Sorry, I didn't know there were different routes. I always enjoy train rides either way.
