Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum - Rush, NY

While traveling in Western NY on a Saturday, we came across this little known museum, the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum.

Upon our arrival, we found that we appeared to be alone.

To be honest, we heard radios in the background, which meant we were not completely alone. 

So we started our adventure without having to worry about others being in our shots. 

Although this also made it a little difficult to find out any information about the trains on display.

As it turns out, the museum is the only operating railroad museum in New York State, and we just happened upon it by accident!

As it turns out, the museum actually gives rides each month.

 

As we entered the train office building, we were greeted by period correct office and train attire.

 

 

The rail yard had a few nice examples of engines, and cars from a period long since gone. 

 

If you get a chance to stop by and take a look around, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
