My husband and I took the 5 hour trip to Crawford Notch, and had lunch on the way back. The staff, from beginning to end, was spectacular. Very attentive, and informative. I truly did not see this as a SCENIC tour. We did drive through towns, and given historic information, but most of the scenery was tree trunks and old... More

Three of us decided to have dinner on the Conway Scenic Railroad Train. The food was wonderful, well done. The servers were the best, great personalities, friendly, fun and very professional. I'm so glad we did this dinning adventure. The only down side for us was the Scenery. All we could really see were trees and if you look carefully... More

The motion of the train going down the track. A bygone era re-visited. We want to do a longer train ride the next time.

We decided to try something new and booked 2 tickets for the dinner train this past weekend. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was! Everyone, from the woman who handed us our tickets to the conductor and wait staff, was friendly and went out of their way to help. Be prepared if... More

We celebrated our anniversary by booking a tour on the Conway Scenic Railway’s Crawford Notch trip. This is the train that goes up to the notch on the west side of Mt. Washington and back. It was a blast. The attentiveness of the staff and the pleasant narration combined with dramatic and majestic views of steep mountains and carved out... More

We went on the Crawford Notch train. The day was cloudy with light rain, but the train staff made the trip very enjoyable. We did the dome car with lunch. The lunch was outstanding, large portions. First class seating had more room than the dome.

We sat in an open carriage so that we could take good photos without the glare of glass . Trainmen Dave came and spoke to each traveller which was a nice touch and the rest of the staff from Ticket Office to snack bar were all friendly. The trip takes a bit less than two hours including a turnaround at... More

The station and trains are gorgeous. We did the Dining car. The food wasn't that great, not recommended. Plus, it might be better spent in a car you can check out the scene. However, the Conway Train at 1:30 pm does not provide good scenery. You pass by a lot of modern homes, and a trailer park. We rode through... More

We're glad this review appreciated our 1874 station and historic rail cars, but sorry s/he was disappointed in the dining experience here. This feedback is not typical. Of the thousands of dining guests we host during the season, we have had very, very few complaints. Overwhelmingly, our staff receives compliments and comments of appreciation on the quality of the meals... More
