My friend and I woke up to a gloomy day in North Conway so decided we would go on the train ride since my friend had never taken a train ride in all her 61 years. We chose the short train ride which only cost $15. Thought that was very reasonable. We very much enjoyed the train station and all... More

We rode on the Conway Scenic Railroad from North Conway to Bartlett, New Hampshire and back on September 18, 2014. The train was very cool. The cars were well-kept up and clean. We sat in first class, and our accommodations were fine. While riding on the train was a fun experience, the scenery was not nearly as good as we... More

We're glad that this reviewer appreciated our well-maintained equipment as well as the overall train experience offered here. As I've written before, this is Conway Scenic's 40th year in operation, and there has been much development along the tracks in the past decades, both natural and manmade. The Valley Trains are promoted as excursions that take you "over the river... More

We went here as part of a tour of the area. We were extremely lucky as we picked a beautiful day. The scenery was spectacular. We particularly enjoyed the carriage with the open views. If you are in the area and the weather is good this is definitely worth doing.

We timed our visit to North Conway en route to our hotel in Bartlett so that we could ride the late afternoon train to Conway. My husband who is a real train buff didn't really want to ride the train since it was to be pulled by a diesel engine but was persuaded to do so. Imagine his delight when... More

50 seniors traveling through the New England States had the opportunity to ride the Conway Scenic Railroad. Al was our guide and he was exceptionally knowledgeable, and had a nice sense of humor. We had our own private car and that was nice. We got some nice pictures. It was very informative. The views were lovely. The day perfect for... More

Being a train buff, I was looking forward to the trip. I took the 5 hour notch train. It was during the foliage season, and although the day started out rainy, this was still a great trip. Of course, the foliage is only for a short season, but this would be a great experience any time. The scenery is wonderful.... More

We decided this fall to take another trip to North Conway for a weekend getaway and to take the Train to view the Foliage - what a great visit and ride ;) Highly recommend at least doing the Bartlett run and going First Class, its new and different each time you ride too. We had a different person narrating the... More

The trip to Crawford Notch is a great take during foliage season. Awesome sights from one end of the notch to the other. Excellent narration along the way. Suggest getting a meal and a bottle of wine for a more enjoyable experience. Meal variety is good but not the best value. Not sure if train goes faster coming back to... More

The leaves were beautiful and the lunch served on the train would rival some fancy restaurants in town. Scenery and route provided many spectacular opportunities for picture perfect photos. If you are in North Conway you should not miss this attraction.
