They offer several different routes and 'Class of service" tickets. Very enjoyable and a great way to get an overview of the surrounding countryside. Very family friendly and you can wander around the Train Yard/Depot and see the trains and cars up close and personal!

Railroad is a nice way to spend a leisurely afternoon. It’s conveniently located in downtown NorthConway, so you can easily walk around the area. Due to the season, we could only do the Valley tour, which is about a 54 minute ride. Still nice views.

We have had the box lunch which was OK. Our grandson likes the hot dogs, but most kids do. If you want something special for lunch pack your own. You can always get hot or cold drinks on the train.

The Valley train has multiple trips per day. The Notch train leaves at 11 AM and returns at 4 PM, so just once a day. We've only been on the Notch train so cannot address any questions regarding the best time on the Valley... More

There really isn't time at Fabyan Station for lunch. The train does have about a thirty-five minute layover at Crawford Station, 5 miles before Fabyan. There are picnic tables there. Susan Logan Marketing Manager CSRR
