Can you hear the sound of a whistle? That’s the Amtrak Exhibit Train coming to the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat, August 23-24 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Climb aboard, take a free, self-guided tour to learn about Amtrak’s history, and catch a glimpse into the company’s future. Displays include vintage advertising, past menus and dinnerware, period uniforms, photographs, and other items of memorabilia from Amtrak’s creation in 1971 to a model of today’s modern-sleeping accommodations and high-speed rail service displays. Interactive displays include railroad horns, trivia questions, workable signals and an engineer’s stand.
Whether you’ve been riding since the company’s beginning, or are just becoming part of it, there is something on the Exhibit Train that’s guaranteed to strike a chord. Join us and discover more about America’s love of trains.
This is a Free Event so bring the kids.
