Birthday Parties of all ages are welcome on the train. Plan a special Birthday dinner. Celebrate with drinks and music or plan a fun themed Birthday for the kiddos!

There couldn't be a more perfect way to celebrate an anniversary with your family than to take them on a train ride! We have couples that come back every year to ride the same train they got married on. Talk about something special!
Weddings in Vermont are beautiful! In such a romantic state we will take your wedding party on a countryside train ride. It is a perfect venue for fall weddings, or Winter Wonderland themed weddings. Get married on the train, use the train as a shuttle to your venue, have your reception on the train or even your rehearsal dinner. We are here to make your wedding special and unique.
Hop on our train and have fun while doing business. Yes, we did put the words business and fun in the same sentence. VRS trains can accommodate special meetings with our business car, company get-a-ways, or help you celebrate special milestones for your business. A train ride can also provide an additional customer attraction during special sales or promotions!
Special Events/ Fundraisers
Vermont Rail System can help you host holiday events such as Christmas trains, Easter trains, Halloween/ Fall Event trains, New Years trains, Mardi Gras trains, you name it! If you have an organization you would like to raise money for, this is a very unique and special way to do it. Trains are a great way to get people involved with charitable causes. Some familiar charity charters include:
Vermont Childrens Trust Foundation (The Polar Express)
The Ronald McDonald House (The Jingle Bell Express)
School Field Trips
Teach students about transportation, railroad history, view nature, or travel to a museum or historical location along our railroad. With stations in many Vermont towns we may be only a short bus ride away from your school! Train rides are a great way to engage children in learning. To go above and beyond, schedule an operation life saver event right on the train to educate both children and adults about the importance of train safety.
Running out of ideas for places to have a get together with the whole family? We can accommodate small and large families on our trains to have fun while enjoying a tour of Vermont's countryside. Bring entertainment and catering on board to enhance your family get together!
