We took the hobo railroad on sort of foggy rainy morning in July. There's a nice gift shop. You get your tickets and get on board the diesel train. I think it used to be a commuter train. You take a trip from the station through woods, over the Pemigawasset River, and then more woods. You get a whiff of the diesel exhaust from time to time but that's life on a train. Eventually you pull into a golf course with red buildings and for a second you can imagine Bill Murray's caddyshack character coming out of one of the golf course buildings. Then the train stops. Then it goes in reverse and you go back. As you go your conductor is walking the cars with mic in hand talking about the history of the trains and the white mountains. He had a sense of humor and you do learn a few things. Then the snack cart comes. I wasn't sure if a free snack was included in the fare, kind of like on a plane, but its not free. We got some prepackaged ice cream cups and potato chips. I'm sure when the weather is nice its a lot more scenic. When we got back to the station we kind of felt like, "That was okay, but kinda pricey." We had a much better time later on in the day at Lost River..
