Scenic Railroad plans Blues Train

The Wilton Scenic Railroad will run a special Blues Train on Saturday, Aug. 7, at 7 p.m. Featured will be the Scissormen and Frank Morey of Boston.

They will provide “juke joint thunder” as heard in the hills of Mississippi on the twilight ride to Greenfield State Park. At the park, they will leave the train and join together to present a program of blues, Chicago style, which shows Morley’s roots in Lowell.

On the return trip, the bands will switch cars, providing all passengers with the music.

Memorabilia will be for sale both on the train and from the band. Ticket price Blues Train is $20.

Trains leave downtown Wilton on weekends at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. For more information, call 654- 7245 or go to
