Cape Cod Central Railroad

This webpage is unofficial, Click here for the official Cape Cod Central Railroad website.

Cape Cod Central began operations on May 28, 1999.  With two locomotives in primer and one partially painted coach running free round trips between Hyannis and West Barnstable, the inaugural trains might not have been much to behold, but it was great just to see a passenger train running on the Cape after a nearly one and a half year absence.  The photos on this page are of the 1999 season.  For photos of year two, click here.
