“Fun for Young and Old”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

A fun trip through gorgeous scenery--everyone had a great time. We went on the Harvest trip (complete with pumpkins), the Christmas trip and also the Thomas the Train one. Our granddaughter had a wonderful time, our daughter and also the grandparents (us). The store has a lot of information about trains, special keepsakes to buy and postcards and other souvenirs and items of history.

“Excursion”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Gave my husband an excursion for Christmas. Got to spend most of the day enjoying the luxury seats. Many stops on the way back to take photos. Was nice seeing my husband having such a wonderful time. Thank you MBRE for a rememberable day!!

“Fantastic Train Ride!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We took the Conway Scenic Railroad and it was worth every penny. The views were outstanding but it was very cold on the train (only because we were seated for almost 2 hours). The train was a lot of fun and would highly recommend it to any one!

“The Polar Express is a magical ride!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We took our kids to Jackson, NH for the Christmas break and rode the Polar Express from the North Conway historic train station and it was so much fun! They fed us hot chocolate and candy nougats, led us in carols, pointed out the scenery and took us to the enchanted North Pole where Santa and his elves visited. We heard a reading of the iconic story complete with a slide show of the pictures from the book, sang more carols and when we got back on the train they gave each of us our own silver sleigh bell so that we would always remember our ride on the Polar Express. Like we could ever forget!!

“Chugging down the track”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Of course my son loved the train ride. The store is cute and the people are nice. We enjoyed the ride and the narration. Want to come back for Thomas.
