The Green Mountain Limited
Come ride along with The American Steam Railroad in conjunction with Luxury Rail Travel onboard the Green Mountain Limited. Ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city to a place where time slows down and relaxation is the name of the game.
As you climb aboard our private cars, your worries will drift away as we whisk you north at 110 miles per hour through Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and into New York City. Fear not, there's no traffic to fight an no lines to stand in, you'll pass through the heart of the Big Apple safely and quickly aboard our cars. Once we get north of the city, you'll see the sprawl of the east coast fade away into a sea of small towns and forests.
As we head north, even our train slows down to take in the views as we pass through Connecticut, Massachusetts and into Vermont.
Our train will drop you off in Burlington, Vermont (Essex) where you'll pick up your rental car and head to your hotel to check in. From that point, you'll have all that Vermont has to offer right at your fingertips for 3 days and 4 nights. Maybe you want to sail on Lake Champlain, perhaps 18 holes of golf is more your speed. There's so much to do and it's all up to you! Ride the scenic back roads to discover covered bridges or stop at a small town farmers market for lunch. Walk historic Downtown Burlington or sample some of the local flavor. As the sun drops, head to a local eatery or brewpub for dinner then maybe a nice walk down the beach before bed.
The best part is, the trip to Vermont is part of the fun! You'll ride onboard the fully restored, First Class rail cars Kitchi Gammi Club, a Pullman car who's comfort is accented by it's "smooth as glass" ride quality and comfortable seating, and Passaic River, a lounge diner combination car where breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served along with all-day snacks while you watch the world go by out large picture windows. Drinks are also included in the price of your ticket and your car hosts will be more than happy to serve you at your seat, or if you prefer, in the lounge.
Your Vermont experience includes all rail travel, rental cars in Vermont, meals on the train during the trip up and back, and your hotel room(s). You will also receive in the mail booklets and pamphlets on activities in the Burlington area so that you may plan your 3 days in Vermont to their fullest. You may board the train in Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, Wilmington, DE, or Philadelphia, PA at no extra charge. You may also get back off at any of those stations on our return trip.
We can also arrange to carry your sporting equipment at no extra charge. Bicycles, fishing rods, etc are no problem. Please contact us to make these arrangements or with questions about your specific items.
