About Adobe Mountain Desert Railroad Park
We are a multi-use train oriented park on 135 acres. We provide train rides on a fleet of 7 1/2" gauge trains, an operating indoor & outdoor model train display (G, HO & N scale) as well as a railroad museum. We are a 501C3 non-profit that operates strictly by donations and is run by a volunteer staff. We opened in 1998 and have 18 miles of track with four routes open for public rides. We open to the public on the first and third weekend (Saturday & Sunday) of the month from 11am until 3pm. We are closed May/June/July/August/September. The train rides average 20 to 30 minutes each. We also open for our Holiday Lights train rides from 6pm until 9pm on Friday & Saturday nights from the last weekend in November through the end of December. Holiday Lights rides are 20 minutes in length.
