EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – A new track has been completed for the model railroad at Graham Central Station.
Children are invited to ride the train at East Longmeadow’s fabled railroad depot, Graham Central Station, home of Steve Graham’s popular ice cream shop. The model trains revive the 1877 building which hasn’t seen a passenger train since they stopped running there in the 1940s.
Superintendent of Graham Central Railroad, Dwight Sturtevane, told 22News, “that the longer area of the Railroad is now open for use and rides.” Also featured is a 30-foot tunnel. To see the new construction completed, visit the station’s YouTube.
The Depot building, formerly the East Longmeadow railroad station, offers breakfast, lunch, and ice cream Tuesday through Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The train originally opened in September 2022 and will reopen for the season on March 31st.
