An authentic piece of Portland, Maine history. You can ride on this two-footer during the summer season.

Not really a great ride for my hubby and I. The people were very nice, but it was too short to really enjoy...basically a VERY SLOW ride to broken bridge, and then back. For $14 each. I would not recommend this attraction if you're looking for railroads

I had never heard of a narrow gauge railroad, and I love trains, so I had to check it out. A narrow gauge is apx. 4' wide, while a standard train car is apx. 6' wide, hence narrow gauge. Ride was about 35 minutes, with a stop to get out and take pictures, plus you could explore the caboose. Fun! Narrator was excellent. Loved it.

We did not take the train ride as you can manage the route on foot if you want to. However, we did have a good look around the locomotive and carriages and the little shop. It is of passing interest only unless you are a serious railway enthusiast.
