Here at the Green Mountain Railroad, it is our mission to make each one our guests feel like part of our family. We believe in creating a nostalgic experience with our own little touches of modern elegance. We try to carry our love for what we do so that it shows in every aspect of our work. It is essential for us to create timeless memories for you and help you discover the romance of rail travel and the happiness it brings!

Family-owned and operated for over 50 years!

The Wulfson family has owned and operated the Vermont Railway since 1964. With strong dedication to customer service, it is our mission to provide high-quality, unforgettable experiences that connect generations through rail travel.



Two locations in the most beautiful destinations!

We offer seasonal departures from both Burlington and Chester, Vermont. Burlington is a beautiful destination year-round, located just off of Lake Champlain with plenty of shopping and attractions. Two hours south, you’ll find the quintessential town of Chester in the Okemo Valley. This area is rich with history, local shops, and some of the best dining in the state!

The perfect venue for your next special event!

We have two fleets and more that 15 rail cars that were built between 1931 and 1937. Most of our cars have had their interiors restored and altered for more modern uses. Our variety of dining cars, coaches, lounge cars, and our private business car make the perfect location for weddings, corporate events, private charters, and more!

Elegance on Wheels!

Enjoyed our fine dining experience rolling through the beautiful Fall foliage and farmland along Lake Champlain. Our meal was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. The train itself was well-maintained and ran smoothly over the tracks. Our coach was clean and spacious. The overall experience was delightful.

Great Experience!

We booked both the dinner and lounge car for our 25th Anniversary. The staff was incredible from purchasing tickets, all the way to the end of the trip. They went above and beyond to celebrate us and provide great service. We were given a rose and petals sprinkled in the table with a bottle of champagne!

Great Ride & Dinner!

The ride was so much fun! The dinner was very good, the service was excellent: very polite and friendly. This is a unique dining and travel, experience that you just don’t see much of anymore. We highly recommend it! And the Vermont scenery, along Lake Champlain with the mountains, the farms and the sunset was beautiful. You must go. All aboard!
