The Essex Steam Train & Riverboat makes 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 through 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 plan your function in the Oliver Jensen Gallery, River Valley Junction, or on board our Little Red Caboose.

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

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