On the Conway 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.
As the name implies, this train stays in the Valley. While it does cross several rivers and offers some nice, distant mountain views, it does not go into the mountains. Children under 4 ride FREE in Coach on the Valley Trains, and well-behaved dogs are always welcome.
Please note: All trains depart from our station in North Conway Village.
Throughout most of the season, you will be seated in the Gertrude Emma. In April & May and November & December, on either end of the Notch Train’s service, the Lower Dome of the Dorothea Mae and the CP Reed cars are also options for First Class seating.
The options below are ONLY AVAILABLE on weekends in April & May and November & December:
This option is only available on weekends in April & May and November & December, on either end of the Notch Train’s season. Premium Seating reserves a seat in the Upper Dome of the Dorthea Mae.
This car was built by the Budd Company in 1955 for service on the Empire Builder, the Great Northern Railroad’s flagship out of Chicago. It was conveyed to Amtrak in 1971 and also served on the Alaska Railroad and Cape Cod Scenic Railroad prior to being purchased by the Conway Scenic Railroad in December of 1997.
The car is climate controlled with its own snack bar. The Lower Dome is considered First Class Seating; Upper Dome is Premium Seating. It has been in service on the Notch Train since 2002.
