Publication Details

Our first publication, in 2013, gained a lot of interest as the rails and rail lines expand.

Vermont is in the midst of expanding into Canada and up the western corridor, with stops in Rutland, Middlebury, and Burlington.

Vermont by Rail connects travelers with places to stay, eat, and shop along the Amtrak Vermonter and Ethan Allen routes. This is a connection guide delivering unique opportunities by rail.
