Winter Caboose Adventure
January 9 @ 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM$125
Enjoy a 50-minute steam powered excursion in your very own caboose!
About The Experience
Bring your family (or small group) for a steamy winter treat on the narrow gauge railroad! Your group (of up to 15 people) gets exclusive access to the “little red caboose” on the WW&F railway for a five-mile (round trip) 50-minute excursion. The train will travel over the river and through the (hopefully) snow-covered woods for “safe”, old-fashioned fun.
And yes, you can ride “up top” in the cupola (although adults will need to watch their heads!)
During the brief layover at “Top of the Mountain”, your group can detrain and observe “Steam and Saws” – as WW&F volunteers look to clear land for future railroad expansion. Or stay aboard while the mighty steam locomotive runs around the train, so that you get a “front row seat” to enjoy the sights and sounds of steam railroading as it was over a century ago.
Note that the caboose is not heated – so please dress accordingly.
Covid, Accessibility & Cancellations
Your group will have exclusive access to the caboose during the train ride (excepting train crew as needed) so as to provide a safe environment to enjoy with your family or close-knit friends. The caboose accommodates 10-15 people and is handicap/wheelchair accessible.
As this event will be running concurrently with “Steam and Sleighs” the Winter Caboose Adventure may be cancelled should weather or ground conditions make it dangerous for travel or horse handling. In the event of a weather condition cancellation, ticket holders will be notified as soon as possible, and given the option to reschedule or receive a full refund.
