Took the valley train. Great experience but not long enough! The pulman porter was exceptional. The staff were all very informative and friendly.

We were a bit disappointed with this trip, we do take a lot of rail trips when we travel, this was a 5 hour jaunt from Conway to Crawford Notch and back, unfortunately the train did not afford many long range views (we were in the dome car, so were a little higher than other travellers, but even so could...

After traveling to North Conway for over 40 years, I finally took a ride on this railroad. The views were fabulous and the ride was fun.

We took the steam train (for a few bucks extra why wouldn't you?). I've done the drive before, this was a nice change but not that much different. Does give you a better idea of the incline though! On the steam train the way down is tight (leg room!). My boyfriend is 6'4 so barely fit. But we still had... More

Booked a first class ticket on the Gertrude Emma car for the Valley train ride 1hr and 45 minutes. Simply put it was not worth the money. I felt ripped off. The ride states "You’re invited to sit back and enjoy the passing scenery as you travel through fields and woodlands, crossing the East Branch, Saco and Ellis Rivers on... More

I live near a scenic train tour location, and we go once in a while. On our visit to NH, we wanted to do something on a rainy day, so we took a ride. We chose the Dinner Car, Chocorua, and had lunch on the train. It was a great time, with two kids (4 & 8) I dont know... More

We were visiting the area for a long weekend vacation, and our hosts treated us to a ride on the Conway Scenic Railroad. We had an excellent train ride, a surprisingly good meal, and a fun hike. We started at 11am in North Conway and took the train West and North through the scenic Crawford Notch to the Crawford Notch... More

This was the first time my family visited North Conway. We were very excited to take a train ride as my children have never experienced this one before. We were very disappointed in the trip. We paid over $170.00 for 1 1-2 train ride and a meal. The waiter and staff were friendly and the train itself was neat. However... More

We're always sorry when someone is disappointed with their experience here. In our brochure, on our website, and at the ticket office, the Bartlett excursion is described as one that goes "over the river and through the woods." All of our excursions depart from our station in North Conway Village, so passengers are going to see development along the tracks.... More

Do not expect a thrilling ride through the mountains. The ride just goes down to Conway and back. Other riders were complaining about the northern route, that it was too long and too expensive.

We have three train routes, and the Conway excursion is the shortest of our two Valley Trains. The Valley Trains don't go into the mountains. Our Notch Train does, but we're not a theme park, and even that ride isn't described as "thrilling." We offer an old-fashioned railroading experience in vintage equipment over historic tracks, with all trains departing from... More
