Enjoy a ride aboard our Rail Fan’s Photo Excursion train that departs our N. Conway station and heads to Crawford Notch! This special train makes several stops along the way for passengers to de-board and take photos of our vintage locomotives and equipment as they run by for photo opportunities. This unique event will run approx. 5-8 hours and returns back to our station in N. Conway.

On the Mountaineer train ride, you’ll travel on what was once the Maine Central Railroad’s famed Mountain Division line, on tracks that were laid in the 1870s. Enjoy some of the most dramatic natural scenery in the East as you travel through spectacular Crawford Notch – past sheer bluffs, steep ravines, cascading brooks and streams, panoramic mountain vistas, across Frankenstein Trestle and Willey Brook Bridge – enroute to Crawford Depot and Fabyan station.

As you travel through this rugged terrain, you can begin to appreciate what a remarkable engineering achievement constructing this railroad was over 140 years ago. Live commentary onboard includes history and folklore of the railroad and area, as well as points of interest.
