At the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat, we make memories for a lifetime – from a toddler’s joy at seeing Thomas the Tank Engine to a golden wedding anniversary aboard the Essex Clipper Dinner Train.

Our core business is the daily operation of vintage railroad equipment on excursions throughout the beautiful Connecticut River Valley, but we love to make our facilities, equipment, and hospitality expertise available for a variety of functions:

Charter our Steam Train, Riverboat, or Dinner Train, or choose to plan your function in the Oliver Jensen Gallery, River Valley Junction, or onboard our Little Red Caboose.

For additional information, questions, or to arrange your function today, please contact Pam Amodio at 860-767-0103 ext. 217 or via email

Have an idea for a function not listed here? Contact our office – we’d love to help!
