RUSH— The Rochester and Genesee Valley Railroad Museum announced they will be opening a special, 40-mile trip through Livingston and Monroe Counties on the Livonia, Avon and Lakeville Railroad, to take place Saturday, October 27.
The Rochester and Genesee Valley Railroad Museum will be celebrating its 75th anniversary by inviting the public to a historic, one-of-a-kind excursion.
The ride, which leaves from Conesus Lake Sportsman’s Club at 11 a.m., will be the first public railroad excursion since LA & L Railroad took ownership of the line in 1996. The history of the tracks dates back to the 1850s, but public passenger lines have not run since 1941.
Passengers will be treated to an exquisite spectacle of railroad history, complete with authentic refurbished 1940s coaches, multiple photo stops and enthusiastic volunteer guides.
Advanced reservations are required to ride the train, and all proceeds go to supporting the Rochester and Genesee Valley Railroad. Tickets may be bought online, over the phone or via mail.
