Most of the trip is through a ravine where all you see is trees. Nice if you come from a place where there are no trees, but the train is really only worth the money in the Fall foliage season. (I'm guessing it's worth it then, since we went in mid-September, when the trees were mostly green.) Communication was terrible. We sat in the "No Dogs" car, next to some people that had a purse dog that yapped at everybody who passed by. They told us there was no outside food, but nobody checked so you could bring on as much as you wanted. I missed the notice that we needed to order lunch from the snack bar 24 hours in advance, but fortunately, that turned out to not be true, either. We just walked right up and ordered the same lunch as everybody else. The train tracks run beside a road, so you're better off waiting to see if the leaves are changing and drive yourself for a lot less money.

We left the station at 11:30 and had our lunches waiting for us on the table (turkey sandwich, pasta salad, potato chips and cookies and a hummus plate). We made our way past Attitash Resort and headed to Crawford Notch. The scenery was amazingly breathtaking! We were amazed at the engineering that put a rail bed on the side of a mountain hundreds of feet above the road! Just awesome! The crew was very professional and helpful. We stopped for about an hour at Crawford Notch and had a relaxing return trip back. The railroad cars were clean and updated nicely. An overall great experience!

Save you money, at least until the leaves turn. There was no narration due to z malfunction in equipment. The majority of the trip was just looking at trees outside the window along the road. Lunch was okay, just hope you like wheat bread, we don't, too bad. Get to the stop and there's really nothing there, a small lake, great photo opportunity. Otherwise nothing. Small, and I do mean small gift shop,outhouse toilets inside, caught a draft when I sat down to pee. Kudos for being eco friendly. All in all folks just drive up

Unless you just like riding on trains or it is in the fall when the leaves change, forget it. 4.5 hours riding thru the woods. When you get to the end and the train turns around, there is just a small gift shop and small lake. Not worth the money.

We were in the Upper Dome, so the view was excellent. However, the trip was a bit tedious. The speakers in the Upper Dome were not working, so we had no narration. The travelers in the lower section had very limited views, just trees. Maybe during the fall foliage it would be better. I would not recommend the trip to Crawford Notch for families with children, too boring.
