The Cape Cod Central Railroad takes guests past marshes, cranberry bogs, dunes, and other places only accessible by rail, but which ride to choose? Perhaps you can enjoy a daytime ride with narrated tales of the history of the canal and how cranberries are harvested? Or maybe a relaxing weekday lunch or Sunday brunch is more your style? Maybe a sunset dinner train is just the ticket? We say, why choose? Come explore all the Cape Cod Central Railroad has to offer. Cape Train is conveniently located at the Buzzards Bay and Hyannis train stations in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, along the coast of New England. We are located about 40 minutes south of Plymouth and an hour from Provincetown. We run rain or shine. All aboard!

View some of the first signs of spring on the Cape and enjoy a quieter time of year with migrating birds visiting and colorful blooms beginning to appear.

I loved the train ride!

We did the excursion tour. It was excellent. The Tour had great narration and really gave us a good viewing of the south part of the Cape. The ride was beautiful with salt marshes, birds/nests, cranberry farms, etc.

A great trip

We had a fantastic experience on this tour. They really make you feel welcome right from the parking lot attendants to the “thank you” as you leave the station. We booked in diamond class which was well worth it. The Cape Codder cocktail was very well made. We also very much enjoyed the tour of the glass factory.

Great ride with a lot to see.

We had a great train ride and got see a lot of Mass that normally wouldn't be seen if not on the train. Host was very informative of the area and the crew were very friendly and helpful. Well worth the time.

Excellent ride and fabulous dinner

My husband and I enjoyed the great ride and fabulous dinner. The food is outstanding. I must admit this is my 1st train ride and it was the best. This excursion takes 3 hours and is well worth the money.

Cape Cod Central Railroad
Lovely day out

Booked a lunch trip for myself and my partner while we were staying in Cape Cod. We went on a 2 hour journey with a 3 course lunch included in the price. The staff gave us commentary on the local area, while we enjoyed a fantastic lunch. Food was lovely and the staff were all very friendly. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area, and not too expensive.
