We are operating weekends only, with two round-trip departures to Conway:  11:30 & 1:30

Great for Families  •  11 miles roundtrip •  through December 31st

On the Valley Train, you’ll enjoy an old-fashioned railroading experience as you journey on historic rail routes in vintage passenger cars (most from the 1920s) from our 1874 train station in North Conway Village to Conway and back again.

Children under 4 ride FREE in Coach on the Valley Trains, and well-behaved dogs are always welcomed at Conway Scenic Railroad!

We are open weekends only at this point in the season for our “Santa’s Holiday Express” trains, with round-trip departures to Conway only at 11:30 & 1:30

Please note: All trains depart from our station in North Conway Village.

Valley Train Excursions

The 11-mile, 55-minute round-trip Conway excursion is ideal for visitors wanting a shorter train ride, especially those with young children. We are open weekends only at this point in the season for our “Santa’s Holiday Express” trains, with round-trip departures to Conway only at 11:30 & 1:30

 

 

The Bartlett Valley Train’s operating season has concluded and will resume in April.  The 21 mile, 1¾ hour roundtrip Bartlett excursion offers a longer and more relaxing train ride that takes you “over the river and through the woods.” You’re invited to sit back and enjoy the passing scenery as you travel through fields and woodlands, crossing the East Branch, Saco and Ellis Rivers on the way to Bartlett. Here you also have the opportunity to watch the locomotive “run around” for the return trip to North Conway.

First Class dining on the Dining Car Chororua is an option on the Valley Trains from mid-June through late October. A three-course lunch is available twice a day, on both the 11:30 departure to Bartlett and the 1:30 departure to Conway. Dinner service is available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday evenings through Sunday of Columbus Day Weekend.

Please note: Vintage diesel electric locomotives power most of our excursions. However, during midweek in May until Memorial Day week and midweek the last week in October, excursions are on our Budd Rail Diesel Car, the Millie, which is a self-propelled, diesel-hydraulic rail passenger car. If motive power is important to you, we recommend calling ahead with questions. All excursions are round-trip. Our 1921 steam locomotive #7470 is out of service until 2019 while it undergoes a major, federally-mandated overhaul.
