The Rotary Club of Greenport, NY is leading the project to rebuild the miniature train which operated in the Village of Greenport for 27 years to the delight of thousands of children. Unfortunately, it stopped operating in 2012 but now we have the opportunity to bring it back.The Greenport Express
The acquisition of a miniature train with an engine and three passenger cars
The construction of a quarter mile track on land provided by the Village of Greenport
The construction of a facility with a passenger area, public restrooms and a maintenance area for the train
The 16 guage train (circa 1954) as seen in the photograph has a capacity to carry 36 children. The planned track will run through the woods on property owned by the Village of Greenport.
Our plans are to start construction this spring. The Greenport Rotary Club has already purchased the engine and passenger cars and the next step will be to start laying the track. The final phase of construction will be the train station itself.
