Take a ride on the Railway

To the editor:

We recently had occasion to take our 5-year-old grandson on a ride on the Berkshire Scenic Railway. It was such a pleasure to gently and quietly be able to explore the country around us, which would otherwise be impossible to see by car.

And what a pleasure to be taken on a trip into the past with narration that not only told a fascinating history of these little towns nestled in the Berkshires, but also of the many uses of the land today and in the past.

The staff was kind and knowledgeable, and we thank those who dreamed about this railway and made it happen.
