Two options for rides are available, took the southeastern route. Highlights of the trip include two cover bridges near the tracks. The crews' narration was not very exciting. This was a relaxing and scenic trip, well worth the visit.

The ride was very scenic with nice commentary about local history. Beautiful Autumn views of mountains, church steeples and sheep! Only negative is needing better signage for the train station. Small sign on bottom of pole isn't enough. This is a great tourism draw and should be at the forefront.

Having spent a week driving thru Vermont Foliage, it wasn’t the best scenic train ride but it’s a good trip. It followed the road a lot, especially the road we’d followed getting there from Ludlow, VT. However, the are enough areas where the road doesn’t take you to make it worth while. However, I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re short... More

We did the Chester to Rockingham ride. Very scenic and enjoyable. Foliage was just starting. Saw covered bridges and learned why they were covered.

We rode the Green Mountain Flyer from Chester to Ludlow and back to view the fall foliage. It was a fun experience with a friendly crew. The train ride doesn't offer too many open vistas to view the countryside. Mostly the view is blocked by the trees along the tracks, but it was pretty nevertheless. There is nothing to do... More

We decided to take a couple of train rides this Fall and this was one of them. The drive out was pretty scenic in NH with color in good shape. It was less colorful in VT and on this ride, but a good outing nonetheless. The ride was comfortable and the host commentary was good, but (as another reviewer has... More

We relaxed on this 2 hour trip up and back the Vermont countryside. The foilage here was still not quite colorful yet. This was the first day of the fall trip. We really just saw VT countryside which was nice sitting back to view and not driving. I think the trip would be nicer if there was a destination where... More

I booked the Bellows Falls to Rutland, Vt. trip over this past Columbus Day weekend two months in advance. The train was to leave the station at Bellows Fall at 8:30 a.m., but didn't end up leaving until almost 9:00 a.m.. Once we were traveling, we were told we would then make two additional stops in Chester and Ludlow to... More
