Arcade & Attica Railroad

Welcome aboard the last operating steam train in New York State. Your journey aboard the ARCADE & ATTICA RAILROAD begins even before you board the train. The historic station is loaded with nostalgia from railroad days gone by. Roam the gift shop and snack bar while waiting to board your train. Very soon, the engineer has gotten the train up to speed and you are on your way, enjoying your 90-plus minute ride through history. Along the way, you will enjoy Wyoming County’s beautiful countryside, filled with forests, farmlands and babbling brooks, most of which have remained virtually unchanged since the line was originally laid in the 1880s.
