Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum

The Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum (reporting mark BRMX) is a railroad museum located in Lenox, Massachusetts, United States that offers historical exhibits as well as train rides up to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, United States on the Housatonic Railroad right of way. The Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum was founded in 1984, as a not-for-profit organization. The same year, the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum began operating passenger excursions between Lee and Great Barrington, over tracks owned by the Housatonic Railroad. Due to deteriorating track conditions, passenger operations were suspended in 1989. The excursion trains returned in 2003, based out of the restored station in Lenox, with regular schedules to Lee and Stockbridge. Special events are sometimes held in conjunction with railroad operations.

All of the museum's critical functions are staffed entirely by volunteers.
