Upcoming TRAIN Excursions


‘Green Knight Train’
on the Washington County Railroad
(Boston) – White River Junction, VT to Wells River, VT & Return
One day only - Saturday, June 15, 2019

Green Mountain Railroad trainMass Bay RRE, in cooperation with Green Knight Train, LLC (a group of Dartmouth alums) offers a specially-chartered train excursion over the former Connecticut & Passumpsic Rivers RR from White River Junction to Wells River, VT and return. Known as the “Pompey Line,” this ex-Boston & Maine route now belongs to the State of Vermont, which leases it to the Vermont Rail System’s Washington County Railroad. The “Pompey” once handled B&M's Day White Mountains Express between New York and Berlin, NH, with connections to Quebec points. This will be the first public passenger train to cover the full length of the “Pompey” in several years.

The ‘Green Knight Train’ leaves at 10:30 AM from the 1937 Colonial-style Amtrak station in White River Junction. On our way north, we will pass Norwich, with Dartmouth College just across the Connecticut River, Pompanoosuc (which gave the “Pompey” its nickname), Fairlee, Bradford and Newbury before reaching the once-busy junction of Wells River. Here we will reverse direction and head south for an anticipated 4:30 PM return to White River Jct. The trip will include limited photo stops, subject to weather, schedule and operating conditions..
