Event access is available either via train rides OR just walk-in yard access through the gate.

Color coded wrist bands will be distributed based on which return trip you purchase. ALL people in attendance will have a wristband which will designate that they have paid and signed a liability release waiver. These will need to be picked up in the tent for walk-ups and will be distributed on the train for passengers riding to the event.

Visitors will have TWO options:

  • Admission + Train Ride
  • Admission Only

Rail Fan Day 2022 Information:


Due to the fact that the dome car will be used on the dinner train, it will ONLY be available on the 11:20AM return trip. If you wish to take a later trip, you’ll be seated in either first or standard class for the return.

Attendees are responsible for finding their own parking for the event. Each station has limited parking. Those purchasing “EVENT ONLY” tickets will need to locate parking in Hyannis and cannot park at the Engine House or in the rail yard.
