A quick train ride

Good to say you've been on a train! I don't think it was worth 19 dollars per adult for an hour train ride, but I understand the cost of operation and value it's been around since... read more

My husband and I went and we rode in the dining car for lunch. It was a lot of fun and the food was quite good. It was a really fun experience.

I have lived in NH all my life and had never been on the Conway Scenic railroad. My wife and I took our 16 year old son on the Valley Train to Conway recently, and unfortunately we were all greatly disappointed. We agreed that we maybe could have done this when the kids were younger, so they could get the... More

We're always sorry if someone is disappointed by his or her experience here. This is Conway Scenic Railroad's 42nd year in operation, and the North Conway area has seen a great deal of development over the last four decades. There are more houses and trees along the train routes than when the Railroad started, especially along the Conway route. That... More

Fantastic day for the Thomas day event that included trips on the train suitable fr young kids and highly recommend sitting up in the dome. Best Views in our opinion and not many people sit up there. You are able to walk around on the train when its moving there are snacks and drinks on the train as well for... More

We did the train ride up to Crawford notch lovely few hours by train. I love trains anyway so I might be a bit biased. Is suitable for kids. The staff on the train were really nice and looked like they really enjoyed their jobs. We travelled coach which was fine for us and ordered the packed lunch for around... More

We wanted to take this train ride through North Conway. We had a lunch ride in their dining car. When you buy tickets you can just buy tickets for the ride or take a lunch or dinner trip. They also have shorter or longer trips depending what you like. The next time we take a dinner trip and a longer... More

They offer several trains to choose from, each have coach or first class seating options. We rode the train to the 'Notch' in coach class. Seats are comfortable and the windows open fully. The equipment is from yesteryear, but maintained quite well. You can order a box lunch, but they fully allow you to bring your own food & beverages... More

We were traveling with small children, as a result you may consider the North Conway to Conway ~55 minute round trip ride. If you are going to be around on a summer weekend day and want tickets to the dining care, book ahead as they can sell out. This isn't a cheap trip (even for the short ride) but it... More

What would autumn be without a leisurely train ride through NH's mountains? Beautiful scenery! A bit pricey, but at this time of year, it's well worth it.

This is a nice location but the train ride is over priced...If you wish to see a train from the 1800's then this is a place to visit
