REAL TRAINS, REAL FUN: See how railroads and our local industries were tied together for generations. Both Rochester Gas & Electric and Eastman Kodak depended on the railroad to produce goods and service the community. They also operated their own railroad services, owning a fleet of freight cars and locomotives to perform work at their sprawling facilities. We will showcase our RG&E and Kodak equipment during this special weekend event!

Diesel Days Weekend - Aug. 20-21

Diesel Days is August 20-21

Up to three vintage diesel locomotives will be operating this weekend, spanning more than 80 years of technology! Railroads have been a vital part of our nation’s success for more than 150 years, thanks to continuous expansion and innovation. One of those innovations is the diesel locomotive, which has been the backbone of the industry since the 1940s.

Diesel Days

 From the earliest switch engines to today’s high-horsepower thoroughbreds, the diesel locomotive has been essential to the growth of American railroads. These kings of the rails come in all sizes, and the collection of the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum gives visitors a close-up look. Tour the engineer’s cab, learn what makes a diesel go, and how they are able to generate so much power. See, hear, and ride behind several different types of diesel locomotives under power.

Your ticket includes a train ride and admission to our museum grounds.
$10.00 Adults
$8.00 Youth (5-17)
$8.00 Seniors (65+)
