Train enthusiasts and families are in for a treat. The Amtrak Exhibit Train is coming to Claremont on June 18. The train was originally created to celebrate Amtrak’s 40th anniversary in 2011and it allows visitors to take a complimentary, self-guided tour to learn about Amtrak history.
Claremont’s Mayor, Charlene Lovett says the City is very fortunate.
Last year a group of citizens and businesses donated time and building materials to build a glass enclosed waiting area for Amtrak’s Vermonter which stops at Claremont Junction two times each day.
Claremont has also organized other activities in conjunction with the event that includes rides for little folks on Tommy the Train, food vendors, information booths, performances by Claremont’s Off Broad Street Players who will provide musical and dramatic vignettes highlighting the railroad’s impact on the people of Claremont and NH.
Lovett says it is the first time the Exhibit Train will be in NH
The Train will be at Claremont Junction on Saturday, June 18 from 10 am – 4pm.
