FEATURING TRAIN TOURS OF NEWPORT

Sit Back, relax and enjoy the salt air breeze as you travel along the cozy west shore of Aquidneck island (Newport RI) in an open platform coach built 1904 or an 1884 parlor car.

Experience a once forgotten era as you travel through the noted Newport RI Naval Base and along scenic Narragansett Bay with its scenic vistas of ships sailing in the bay, natural rocky beaches and wildlife that have adjoined the railway since 1864. Join us and be part of our railroad heritage.

First Class passengers enjoy the "1884" sumptuous private parlor car with individual wicker chairs, all facing the Bay. The parlor car, which is limited to 18 seats, also enjoys the presence of a full retention toilet . a pot belly stove, the conductor's office, and a food preparation area.

Coach passengers enjoy a ride in a vintage car with a "turn of the century" atmosphere seating in one of 72 seats heated by a pot belly stove.

Our Train Rides are an 80 minute, scenic 10 mile round trip tour along the East shore of Narragansett Bay. The train travels through Naval Station Newport.

Newport Rhode Island enjoys a continuous view towards Jamestown Island and the Quonset Point area which are superb scenery. Numerous power and sail craft, tugs with barges and tankers bringing home petroleum products to New England, flourish in our view of the beautiful bay. You will also see Narragansett Bay dotted with various sailing and power craft from our scenic train.

Our trains leave from the OCNRR Depot at 19 America's Cup Ave in Newport RI., across from the Newport RI Convention and Visitors Bureau & Bus Station and just North of the Marriott Hotel.

Parking: We have our own parking lot and have limited parking for our guests at the depot. Our Old Colony phone is (401)849-0546)
