We found this train ride on a Portland area map and checked it out. The museum is small but is trying to grow. There is a railroad history that is very interesting to this area. We took the train ride which was about 45 minutes, the narrator gave fun facts and info during the ride. Old train cars are being... More

It is a little hard to find nestled behind a few old mills, but worth the find. The staff was very friendly and pretty knowledgable considering they are at least mostly volunteer. The museum is small but interesting and informative informative. The ride was nice and they have specialty rides at different times. Their website gives all the info for... More

My wife and I woke up to a foggy Maine day today. In contemplating our activities we came upon the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum brochure in our hotel room. After taking the drive to Portland we found our way to the museum. The museum is set back in an older industrial park that gives you the feeling... More

My family loves to go on train rides while on vacation, and we were not disappointed with Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum. The views from the train were outstanding, and we were very pleased with the open train cars. The workers were very nice, and at the midway stop they let the children (and some children-at-heart!) try out... More

A short 35 minute ride on a train along the water on a Friday night (free ice cream on some Fridays too) was the highlight of my kiddos' day. They also got to board and look through the trains at the museum and play with the train tables and small kid's train too! There were coloring activities along with little... More

We happened to walk into it on our way to the park and it was fun to see the trains which some have been abandon. It charming to see them and think how nice they were back then. It's also great to take pictures.

Let's start with, we have a 3 year old, who loves trains! She was very excited we were driving up to Maine to see them. The museum part is small, but packed. Old train cars available to walk (run through with toddler). Nice area with scaled down train and station so she could explore, color, play with puzzles, press the... More

Friendly staff, great train ride and just an overall pleasant time. They had a very good gift shop and museum. For a fee, they even shipped our purchases. A must see when in Portland.

Little kids probably love the ride. I know my toddler did. The train moves shortly down the track and then backs up to where a bridge used to be. The train stopped and everyone got off and took pictures with the train. We stayed there about fifteen minutes. After reboarding they train, the conductor began telling the history of the... More
