A Bucket-List Train Ride… if we want it
Amherst Railway Society members have a once-in-a-lifetime train ride opportunity. Restored NYC business car 3 is ours to charter – if we plan, organize, and manage the trips.

Palmer, Massachusetts has a rich railroad history. And, the Amherst Railway Society has launched two projects to honor that history.
