Lunch Excursion

Pullman Dining Cars

Enjoy a 3-course lunch aboard restored 1920’s Pullman dining cars as part of a 3.75 hour lunch, train and riverboat sightseeing excursion. Let our attentive staff transport you back to an era when rail travel was king, and eating in the “diner” was a delicious special occasion.

Upon boarding the dining car, you’ll savor a hot lunch that is prepared and cooked on board. Travel aboard the train along the lower Connecticut River Valley while you finish your meal.

Riverboat Cruise

At Deep River Landing, transfer to the Becky Thatcher riverboat for a cruise on the Connecticut River, bursting with lush scenery and historic sights such as Gillette Castle. Following your cruise, return to Essex Station aboard one of our coach passenger cars.
