Conway Scenic Railroad


The iconic 1874 station in the center of North Conway Village has been home for over 40 years to the Conway Scenic Railroad, which began operations in 1974. In the beginning, there were 5½ miles of track between North Conway and Conway villages and only Coach seating in converted box cars.

Today, in addition to the original line, there are roundtrip excursions to Bartlett and through Crawford Notch on tracks that once were part of the famed Mountain Division of the Maine Central Railroad. The Conway line is owned by Conway Scenic, and the Mountain Division line is owned by the State of New Hampshire. Train excursions range from 1 to 5½ hours roundtrip with all three routes offering seating choices of Coach, First Class, and First Class dining.

The Railroad is committed to preserving a part of New Hampshire’s railroading history while at the same time it offering its visitors a variety of experiences that can be enjoyed in comfort and style. Its Station, Roundhouse, and Freight House all are on the National Register of Historic Places, and a self-guided walking tour of the Yard is available at no charge. Children under 4 ride free in Coach, and well-behaved dogs are always welcome.

Annual events include Day Out With Thomas™, Pumpkin Patch Express, Santa’s Holiday Express, and Steam in the Snow. The Railroad opens in April and operates through early January. Hours of operations vary seasonally.
