TO OUR: GOOD
FRIENDS, PATRONS, SUPPLIERS, TOUR OPERATORS, CORPORATE
CLIENTELE, AND EMPLOYEES
After 18 plus years of
operating the Newport Dinner Train, we have decided to
step aside and sell our Dinner Train business.
The new operators are
part of the Integrated Rail Group and have been
operating railroads for over 25 years in the New England
They will operate under
the name of Newport and Narragansett Bay Railroad Co.,
Along with the sale of
the Newport Dinner Train, we have also sold the
franchise rights to The Ice Cream Train in Rhode Island
to the Integrated Rail Group.
The Newport and
Narragansett Bay Railroad Co. will assume control of the
business on November 1, 2014 and will also take over the
Polar Express for 2014.
After completion of the
sale of the Newport Dinner Train, we will begin to
franchise The Ice Cream Train to other tourist railroads
in the United States.
We have enjoyed the
wonderful experience of operating a railroad in Rhode
Island and on beautiful Aquidneck Island.
Our heartfelt thanks to
everyone for your support and patronage. We will
always be thankful for the friendships and camaraderie
established over the last 18 years.
God bless everyone!
