Explorer Express Train

For decades, the Explorer Express Train has provided excitement for EcoTarium visitors. Open-airpassenger cars take visitors on a scenic 12-minute ride; a relaxing and beautiful way to see the museum grounds. As part of a recent partnership with the Worcester Railers Hockey Club, the EcoTarium was able to purchase a new train engine, number 395, which is a replica of the 1863 C.P. Huntington steam locomotive. The train station has been “Railerized,” in the blue and gray colors of the hockey club. Train engineers are outfitted in apparel with the Railers logo.
