The Seybolds purchased the railroad in 1999 and expanded the business to include fine dining and themed events like Polar Express. Profile Mountain Holdings Corp. is jointly owned by David Swirk and business partner William Sullivan, Jr. Swirk was formerly general manager of the Grafton & Upton Railroad, and previously a manager at Pioneer Valley Railroad.
