Essex Steam Train on The Connecticut River

by admin on November 7, 2012

 Essex Steam Train  & Riverboat’s 2½-hour journey begins at the historic 1892 Essex Station for a 12-mile, narrated round-trip into the heart of the unspoiled Connecticut River Valley – designated “one of the last great places on earth” by the Nature Conservancy. The train journeys along the western bank of the Connecticut River and offers beautiful vista’s of the river and surrounding woodland hills. At Deep River Landing, passengers are escorted onto the Becky Thatcher riverboat for a 1¼ hour cruise along the Connecticut River. The visual serenity of the river valley is on full display from Becky’s multiple decks. The deep water, coves, inlets, marshes, wildlife, and dramatic shoreline are all at once, simply breathtaking! Just as impressive are the historic sights of Gillette Castle, the Goodspeed Opera House , and the Haddam Swing Bridge. Upon Becky’s return to Deep River Landing, the steam train welcomes passengers for the return trip back to Essex Station. for more information click here
