Essex Rail & Sail

Welcome aboard the Essex Rail and Sail and enjoy the only steam train and riverboat connection in America!

Our journey will begin at 8:45 AM with deluxe motor coach transportation from IN-SIGHT to Essex, Connecticut, where we will board the classic Essex Steam Train and enjoy lunch in the dining car. After lunch, our conductor will provide an overview of what we are seeing as we take in some of Connecticut’s most beautiful countryside on the way to the riverboat. At Deep River Landing we will board a riverboat for a narrated tour of the lush scenery and historic sites such as Gillette Castle and Goodspeed Opera House. Upon return, our steam train will welcome us for our trip back to Essex where we will board our motorcoach arriving back at IN-SIGHT by approximately 5:30 pm.

Lunch choices are beef tips, baked chicken, or eggplant parmesan and include a tossed mixed green salad, chef’s choice vegetable, and dessert.

Tickets for people with visual impairments (VIP) are $45 each. Each VIP may bring one guest for an additional $90.

Please note that this trip is rain or shine.
