This may be even better after they get approval from the State to run this railroad again on its 20 mile run. The volunteers are so passionate about the history of this railroad and really explain every aspect to the visitor Very very Informative and pleasant

If you already saw all Berkshire's museums, gardens and beautiful state parks, take a scenic tour with the Berkshire scenic railway. It's a different and interesting experience. You will have a fun!

It's not a big thing but it does have a depot and is nicely done. It's not a destination but is worth seeing.

It was a decent little trip for the money. The have a follow along narrartive and point out things along the way. A little bumpy, my back hurt a little afterward. You'll learn so many things too! It runs from Lenox to Stockbridge and back. The railcar museum was interesting too! We had fun!

Take a step back in time on this quaint small railroad that goes to and from one Berkshire town to another. Bumpy but fun. Nice family mini-adventure.

The train is limited as far a travel, but the museum and the staff are great. The staff is willing and able to answer any question posed to them and if they don't have the answer they tell you and then try to find out the answer. This is worth a stop just to see the exhibit in the train... More

Too far for so little. Call make sure is not the reduced ride of 2 minutes. Too little for sich a pondrive. Such a piety. Because I do love old locomotives.
