Thank you for your interest in traveling with the Vermont Rail System

The Green Mountain Railroad is one of five short line railroads that make up the Vermont Rail System. We are a privately owned and operated rail system that runs throughout Vermont and Upstate New York. Our Railroad carries freight to local businesses and brings passengers on scenic tours throughout the Green Mountain State. Our railroad family works together, with three generations of dedicated railroaders, to make your experience nothing but enjoyable. Whether you are coming along for one of our seasonal event trains or chartering our train for your own event, our passenger representatives will work with you to make sure your experience exceeds expectations. Take a ride with us through Vermont's scenic countryside and experience our beautiful Green Mountain State from the rails.
