Arcade & Attica Railroad

Train Rides in Western New York

About Arcade & Attica Railroad

Step back in time aboard our vintage World War ll-era diesel train excursion in New York State. We’re an authentic short line railroad with the distinction of being one of the last “common carriers” — running freight and passenger trains weekly. Your journey aboard the Arcade & Attica Railroad begins before you board the train. As you enter the historic station, you’re surrounded by the history of railroading in America. Then you embark on a scenic journey through the countryside and farmlands that have remained virtually unchanged since the line was originally laid in the 1880s. We make a stop at Curriers Depot, where you’re free to explore, look at the engine, take pictures, and talk with the crew. Book your tickets online today!

Fun Day Out Vintage Train Ride 🚂

It was so much fun to ride to the other facility where they had hot dogs, chili, snacks and ice cream. We had a great time looking at the historic pictures inside the buildings and watching the kids play on the small model train. The ride was enjoyable and the staff did a great job. I would highly recommend this to young and old. Great value for a fun day!

Loved It Murder Mystery Train Ride 🔍

The train ride was great! The whole trip lasted a few hours. The murder mystery was a blast! It was very well planned out. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery along the way. The dinner stop was delicious! This is a great day out with family or friends. They also have a cute store attached for you to buy some souvenirs. All in all, we had a great time!

Great Experience Wonderland Express Train Ride ❄️

What a great experience at a very reasonable price. My grandchildren, ages 3 & 1, were so excited! From seeing the "elves" on the train to visiting with Santa & Mrs. Claus and feeding the reindeer. Added bonuses were the facepainting and so many picture opportunities. Every child was given a gift by Mrs. Claus and on the trip back. What a great time!

Awesome WWII Train Ride 🎖️

My husband and I took 3 of our grandchildren on the ride. We all had such a great time! The folks that did the reenactment for the civil war were great and interacted with the passengers. The staff was very nice and helpful. We plan on going again next year with other grandkids. It was a nice day out with family. Thank you all for such a nice time!

Family Fun Fall Foliage Train Ride 🍂

This was such a great way to spend the afternoon! It was a comfortable ride with some really beautiful scenery along the way. There are really nice museums with A&A artifacts both at the station and where the train stops. Live entertainment while riding the train. A great daytime activity that is fun for both children and adults!
