Diesel Days Weekend - Aug. 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.


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+)
Ages 4 and under ride free!
