I visited the area in December and took the time to take my two little children on the Polar Express ride. From all accounts it is very hard to get tickets for and l understand why, this was something that my children had a ball doing. From the time we got on the train to the stop at Santa's village...

We booked our train ride journey and then went off to explore the other engines and carriages parked up on the other tracks behind the station. We first saw all these tracks behind the station after crossing the main tracks to follow the signs for free parking. We returned and took many photos & video while waiting to board our... More

An interesting way to view the sites. Let the conductor do the driving while everyone enjoys the views. Young children could get bored with the ride, it is a slow process up the hill.

Rode through the Notch during almost peak foliage. Definately a "Must Do" activity! Staff is friendly, helpful and they are Railroad People. Loved it!

Took a train ride New Years day. Basically take a slow ride down the tracks, turn around and come back. We went left from the train station and saw a good amount of run down houses, trailers, woods.... not a whole lot to look at. They conductor tried to give descriptions of the area but either he was mumbling or... More

Great day out on Conway Scenic Railway! This was a special charter trip of the Mass Bay Railroad Enthusiasts that was open to the public. Well organized, box lunches available and lots of opportunities for photos. We rode up to Notchland and back. We have been on several special runs with CSR and enjoyed ourselves. Never done the trip to... More
