Maine's Scenic Train Rides!

Join us in September at several locations as we travel Maine by train!


"Scenic train rides along Maine’s historic rails showcase the state’s culture and natural beauty. Railroads once drove Maine’s economy, transporting lumber and agriculture products to market. It’s the only state that not only operated but also preserves and provides experiences along narrow-gauge rails. Travel back in time on vintage locomotives and passenger cars as they chug along urban, rural and seaside tracks."    --- Sally Barber, USA Today
