LIRR Escorted 190th Anniversary Tour

Join the Long Island Rail Road in celebrating its 190th anniversary!

Take a scenic ride to Greenport and relax while learning about the history of the LIRR and its impact on Long Island from on-board docents. Once you reach Greenport Station, you will head to the Railroad Museum of Long Island to explore the exhibits commemorating both the 190th anniversay of the LIRR and the 180th anniversary of the first LIRR train to Greenport.

Once you’re finished at the Museum, you will board a bus to nearby Moores Woods Park, where you will fully experience the thrill of riding ‘The Greenport Express,’ an Allen Herschell G-16 park train. After your exhilarating ride on the mini train, the bus will bring you to the Railroad Museum at Riverhead for some additional exploring.

This tour also includes a stroll through Greenport at your leisure, where you can enjoy some boutique shopping and waterfront dining (not included in the cost) before heading back to the city. And, you’ll get to take home some exclusive LIRR 190th Anniversary commemorative parting gifts to add to your collection!
