Ticket Sales Open for 2015 Convention

Vermont Rail System, the Saratoga & North Creek Railroad, and timeless New England charm headline the National Railway Historical Society’s 2015 convention in Rutland, Vermont. Taking place June 14-20, 2015, the convention will feature seven days of rare train rides, one-of-a-kind photo opportunities and historic tours, followed by a public rail excursion on June 21.

Highlighting the 2015 convention are specially chartered passenger trains over the colorful and historic Vermont Railway System -- many traveling freight-only routes and featuring photo runbys. Roundhouse and facility tours are also planned. Vintage locomotive fans will savor an excursion on the Saratoga & North Creek Railroad pulled by 1940s-era BL2 diesels, of which only a handful survive.

LOCATION: The 2015 NRHS Convention will be based in Rutland, Vermont from June 14, 2015 to June 20, 2015 plus a public excursion on June 21, 2015.
