Trains at PalmerAfter you've enjoyed 'Two Trains Running,' join members and friends of Mass Bay RRE at the Steaming Tender Restaurant in Palmer, Mass. for an afternoon of train watching, food and fellowship on the grounds of the Palmer Union Station.

Amtrak at PalmerMeet your fellow RRE members and friends in person, watch and photograph CSX and New England Central freight trains, see Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited go by, enjoy a Steaming Tender snack, meal or beverage, or swap a calendar or newsletter at our "Freebie Table."

We'll gather at picnic tables in Olmsted Park, at the east end of the restaurant grounds (the outdoor Café tables are reserved for Steaming Tender patrons). RRE members are encouraged to bring their own chairs and may bring picnic meals. We do encourage everyone to purchase food or drink at the Steaming Tender; in the dining room, at the outdoor Café, or Take-Out. The Steaming Tender has graciously allowed the RRE to use the grounds, and the restaurant restrooms.

Palmer Union StationThe Steaming Tender Restaurant is in the 1884 stone Palmer Union Station, designed by H.H. Richardson, located at the diamond crossing of CSX's Boston & Albany main line and New England Central's former Central Vermont line from New London to St. Albans. The Steaming Tender is located at 28 Depot Street in Palmer.

Mass Bay RRE is honored that the very first revenue train over the WW&F's rebuilt Trout Brook Bridge will be a special charter exclusively for members of Mass Bay RRE, symbolically bringing the history of the bridge full circle after a gap of four decades.

Following a celebration at Alna Center, including speeches and light refreshments, our train will depart for Top of the Mountain. After the ceremonial removal of the "Red Flag," placing the extension into service, and purchase (for $1.00) of "first public excursion" ticket by the Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts, our train will proceed over the Trout Brook Bridge and on to Trout Brook, followed by a second section carrying WW&F members and guests.



Be a part of history, and preserving history! This special train, limited to just 50 Mass Bay RRE members and guests, will be a fundraiser to support the Mass Bay RRE Railroad Preservation Fund.
