A throwback ride to earlier times

Very nice, relaxing ride through the area. The narrator was informative and the scenery was beautiful. I only wish the ride were longer! Highly recommend.

Lovely train ride through the mountains; enjoyable history and beauty! We took the 5 hour train ride and had such a lovely day. Dining available but we had box lunches and had a picnic during the stop at far end. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable!

The Mountaineer Is The Way To Go!

Very enjoyable 5 hour trip. Beautiful scenery and informed commentary. The lunch menu rivals any 5 star eatery! The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. Would highly recommend this trip.

Fun Time

Took a ride on the Mountaineer with our 7 month old puppy. We rode in coach. It was a 4 1/2 hour trip up to Crawford Notch. There was a lot of history told by the narrator of our train. Found it very interesting. There were lots of scenic vistas to see. I am sure it will be lovely during peak fall foliage time. The people that I spoke with to reserve our tickets were so friendly and full of information that I found very helpful. If you are taking your dog with you they give you a cute ticket (see photos) just for them and there is no charge for your dog. We had a wonderful time and our pup was so good. Our car people’s was very nice and complimented us on how well behaved she was. I can’t say enough about the people that work there. Thank you for a great experience.
