Welcome to a summer trip to Porvoo - by train!
When you want to experience a memorable summer day, go to beautiful Porvoo. However, don't rush there along the highway, but take the time for the trip itself. Come by rail and enjoy the atmosphere of the old times.
For the 33rd summer, the Porvoo Museum Railway society is now organizing museum train trips with authentic Finnish railcars from the 1950s. The trip starts from the Helsinki Central railway station on Saturdays 9:49 a.m. and the journey takes an hour and a half.
In Kerava, the track branches off towards Porvoo, takes you through idyllic forest, field and river landscapes until you reach Porvoo's old railway station on the riverbank. The museum train's schedule is designed so that you can explore the city at your leisure for three hours. You will arrive in Helsinki after 4 pm.
Operating days on Saturdays, 27 May, 10 June, 1 July, 29 July, 5 August, 26 August and 16 Septemper 2023
x = stops when requested.
The departure track of the train is shown on the station's information boards. The departure track in Helsinki is usually No. 10. Because of the Kaisantunnel construction site, there are passageway arrangements at the Helsinki platforms. It's worth reserving a few extra minutes to walk to the platform.
The train does not stop in Pasila. On the way back, the Kerava and Tikkurila stops are only for disemparking passengers. In Porvoo, you can enter the train about 20 minutes before departure.
Here we post information if there are changes in our traffic that affect travelers. Updated 25 May.

The Porvoo Museum Railway is located between Kerava and Porvoo. The museum track starts 17 km after Kerava. The last 16 km before Porvoo is almost 150 years old track.
Regular passanger traffic on the state owned Porvoo line ended in 1981 and goods traffic 1990. Porvoo Museum Railway was founded in 1991. The association maintained the railway between 1993 and 2013.
After this, the maintenance was transferred to the Finnish Railways Transport Infrastructure Agency and the railway became an official museum railway. The railway is used by museum railway operators.
