Conway Scenic Railroad

 
Enjoy an old-fashioned railroading experience as you board the train from the 1874 station in North Conway Village and travel in vintage cars over historic tracks to either Conway (11 mile, 55 minutes roundtrip) or Bartlett (16 miles, 1¾ hours roundtrip). Diesel locomotives are circa the 1950s. Coach passenger cars date back to the 1920s, and the First Class car is an 1898 Pullman Parlor Observation Car that was built in Chicago when the Pullman Company was headed by Robert Todd Lincoln, son of our 16th President. The North Conway station, freight house, and roundhouse (complete with a working turn-table!) all are on the Register of Historic Places. A guided walking tour of the train yard is included with train tickets for groups of 10 or more. Season: mid-April through December.
