We always like to stop at the Hobo Railroad. It's a nice train ride thru the local area, and the lunch on board is nice, as is the clown family that comes round to entertain. A nice little playground keeps the little ones entertained while waiting, and my husband likes the fact the gift shop has a bunch of old... More

OK, when you can narrate the ride it is probably time to move on. We have been on the RR 3 times in the last 3-4 years and probably 6 times all together. We were with friends who had never done it so we went on it again. The ride is fine and enjoyable but no need to go again.... More

My husband and I took the Hobo RR on a Saturday morning when the naturalist from Squam Lakes was on board to talk to us. He brought with him a very large beaver to teach us about this animal and the beaver's influence in nature. This made the excursion all the more interesting. Unfortunately, the speaker system did not overcome... More

This is a great thing to do with the kids by the end of the vacation or on days it rains. Relaxing when you don't want to run around for the day.

Good experience and educational also with the narration. Kids had fun watching the clown make things out of his balloons.

Last month, my sister, sister-in-law and I decided to go for a train ride on the Hobo Railroad in Lincoln, NH. From the time we arrived right up until the time we left, everything was great! All the staff were very friendly, polite, witty and hospitable. The lunch was well-worth the money and, most of all, fresh. On the way,... More

We just returned from the 11am train trip at Hobo Railroad. It's not cheap, $104 for the five of us with three lunches and lasted about 80-90 minutes. In comparison to the other train excursions in the area that is a bargain. The kids loved every minute of it and pleasing three year olds and a five year old is... More

We decided to go as it was raining all day and didn't have much else to do. We've been on rides like this in the past and they are not worth it. The same can be said for Hobo Railroad. The price was not cheap for the 4 of us (~$45) for a round trip for about 90 minutes. The... More
