While the brochure explained many of the small buildings & there were many, I guess it wasn't our cup of tea. If you have a child that likes trains, this is the place for them.

Our tour group stopped here on a Thursday. We really enjoyed our 2 hours here viewing the historic buildings that had beef collected from across Maine and relocated here into the “village”. They also have a building with enough antique autos to make any enthusiast happy. It’s located in the back of the village. There is a model train building, a working train to ride, and two stations. Don’t miss this stop while in The area.

We actually went out of our way with hopes of a train ride through the harbor area. Much to our disappointment, the train only traverses a large circle around the various "oldtime" buildings. My feeling is this is directed to small children with parents or grandparents in tow.

We have driven past the Boothbay Railway Village for 30 years and never visited until this summer. What prompted us? Two lovely granddaughters who are of just the right age. We succumbed and discovered that the Railway Village is fascinating. You get to ride on a small, narrow-gauge railway - and also to visit historic buildings that have been relocated to the village and a fun collection of antique cars. We had a great time. So did the kiddos. Actually, they had a REALLY great time. Why did we wait so long? This place is fun. I know we will go back next summer.
