Essex Steam Train and Riverboat
Here’s a train ride with a difference. The Essex Steam Train & Riverboat offers at least a couple of ways of getting up and down the Connecticut River. There’s the train, which you can take from the Essex station, up the river and back again. There’s also a Dinner Train that serves a meal in your fully restored Pullman car. And then there’s the train and boat ride – up the river by train, back down on board the riverboat Becky Thatcher. There are special events, too.
