We took the dome car on the Notch train on Oct 10. The scenery was excellent and the ride relaxing. The seats were comfortable for the 5 hour plus trip. The higher point of view provided better visibility in several directions. On the negative side the windows could have been cleaner and there was too much narration with silly stories. It's nice having the landmarks pointed out but leave it at that. The town of North Conway is a disgrace but that's not the railway's fault.
