The New York Museum of Transportation (NYMT), founded in 1975, is a non-profit organization located at 6393 East River Road, in the Rochester suburb of Rush. A private rail line built by volunteers connects NYMT with the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum, over a distance of two miles. This demonstration railway allows both museums to offer train rides with their collections of vintage railroad equipment. NYMT operates the only electric trolley ride in New York State, not to be confused with the similarly named Trolley Museum of New York located in Kingston, New York.

  • It was fun. See my video on YouTube and also Yelp.
  • This place is an absolute hidden gem. The trolley ride was short, but lovely. A real step back in time. The volunteers are knowledgeable and sincere. Highly recommended. Lots of good Rochester history here.
