We expected the Conway train to not be as scenic as the longer Bartlett one but we also were traveling with a two year old and didn't want to chance longer ride. You have to consider your own personal needs and pick accordingly. This was a chance for son to ride in open car and hear the whistle blow with... More

Absolutely fabulous day. We took the 5-hour trip, and it was perfect. Our Labrador Retriever sat with us in coach, and she loved every minute, too!

As a railway enthusiast I was looking forward to a scenic trip on a restored train through the New Hampshire countryside. The train was very nice ansd well maintained - a shifter diesel did the pulling. The view from the train was 90% close up of the trees that form the barrier between the railway hand the adjacent land. There... More

We're glad that this reviewer appreciated our well-maintained, vintage equipment, but we're sorry that he was disappointed with his 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." However, this excursion also travels along and crosses several rivers and passes... More

We recently celebrated our parents 85th birthdays with a peaceful train ride at a beautiful time of year. The four of us sat facing each other which was great for conversation. We were surprised at how good the food was at lunch time, and we were impressed at how well organized it was. The tour guide Karen was knowledgeable and... More

My husband and I went on the dinner train for the first time. It was fun. The food was good. I had the lobster newburg and my husband had the filet. The 5 courses were done very nice. Our server, Erin was great. She made great drinks. The train left at 5:30pm and returned at 7:45 so it was dark... More

My experience began last month when I called for information. Joanne could not have been nicer. She explained everything and I purchased the tickets while on the phone. They held our tickets rather than trusting the US Mail to deliver them. When Dad and I arrived in town the night before, we stopped at the station to ask about accessibility... More

Five of us rode the Conway Scenic RR and we all enjoyed the Notch Trip. I have ridden many railroads in my almost 73 years and this was by far the best! The staff was pleasant and well informed, the gift shop was not a rip-off, parking was easy, the train yard was accessable and everything was well organized. On-board... More

1 hour train ride was fun. Engine driver and staff were very friendly and you can see the whole town.

Took the hour long train ride into Conway. Was a perfect day and enjoyed the trip. Service was very good and would recommend bringing kids for the ride.

We visted on the 12 September at 3.00pm and the railroad was closed. We were told it was off season but there were many tourists around......a bit short sighted on their part I think.

It's unfortunate that this person gave us a Poor rating simply because he didn't take the time to look at our schedule before stopping by. Midweek during the first two weeks of September are relatively slow in this area, but we still offer a limited daily schedule. On Friday, Sept 12, we had two departures, the last of which returned...
