About us

The Black River Railroad Historical Trust (BRRHT) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization which manages the public passenger trains and events on the Black River & Western Railroad. While we are independent of the BR&W, we work closely with the railroad in order to fulfill our mission to preserve railroad history and educate the public about railroading.

All BR&W passenger trains are staffed by the volunteer railroaders of the BRRHT. Interested in joining? You can join the organization with no prior railroad experience and take advantage of our comprehensive training program to learn ALL railroad crafts, including Maintenance of Way, train service positions, equipment restoration and more!

Passenger excursions currently operate between Flemington, Ringoes, and Bowne. We continue to work toward our goal of re-opening our line to Lambertville, NJ. Click here for more information!
