All Aboard the Fall Foliage Express - A Rare-Mileage Trip on the LA&L Presented by R&GVRRM!

The Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum will be operating a series of Fall Foliage Excursions with the cooperation of the Livonia, Avon & Lakeville Railroad between Lakeville and Industry, New York. Ride in the museum’s reconditioned Budd streamlined coaches built in 1941 for the New York Central’s “Empire State Express” hauled by vintage Alco Century diesel locomotives provided by the LA&L. This is your opportunity to take a “rare mileage” trip over the rails of the freight-only LA&L and enjoy a fun fall foliage tour by train.

Trains will depart from the Conesus Lake Sportsman’s Club in Lakeville. Enjoy a 20 mile round trip through the beautiful Genesee Valley country between Lakeville and Industry. Plenty of free parking at Lakeville. All trains run as round trip with no intermediate stops. Refreshments and restrooms are available at Lakeville and on board the train.
