The CP Reed is a First Class seating option on the Notch Train during the summer and Fall. She is also one of the First Class seating options on the Valley Train on weekends in April and May and late October through December.
She was built by Canadian Car and Foundry in 1954 for the Canadian National Railroad was Coach No. 5465. A snack bar was added in the early 1980s and the car was renumbered. She ended Canadian service in mid-1995 in the Montreal Commuter Pool and arrived in North Conway in November of 1996. She was named after Carroll P. Reed, one of the founders of Conway Scenic Railroad.
Seating in this car can be included in the Notch Train’s First Class Package, which includes First Class seating, beverage service and complimentary snacks, and a three-course luncheon (off the menu) on our beautiful dining car, Hattie Evans. Tax and gratuities for the meal are included in the price. Beverage service and beverage tax and gratuities are additional.
