#1 of 6 in Tours in North Conway
Hop on one of two trains at Conway Scenic Railroad, which takes you past farms, forests, rivers, and mountains, or high above the highway overlooking Crawford Notch. If you choose the Valley Train, you'll get a shorter, old-fashioned ride through valleys. The Notch Train is a longer, more dramatic ride involving ravines and mountain vistas. You can dine on both trains, and both have open-air and closed cars. The staff will answer questions and share stories with you. Don't forget your camera.

  • Had a great time on the train ride to Bartlett. There was a nice breeze flowing through the windows and it was relaxing. The train was very clean and the riders were seated far enough apart. Next...  more »
  • Everything about this visit was relaxing and pleasant, and that is saying something in the age of covid. The staff at the RR, from the woman at the outside desk to the train conductor, were...  more »

  • We visited the Conway Scenic Railroad to ride the Santa train. The town of Conway is picturesque with lots of shops and restaurants. Highly recommend the German chocolate shop. The train depot has souvenirs for sale and a little museum with interesting displays about the trains and local history. We were in the top of the dome car, with glass all around for best views. It was a beautiful trip and we enjoyed visiting with Santa and Mrs Claus and all their elves. We look forward to returning in fall to see the autumn foliage!
  • We've done just about every adventure for the past 25 years. We've never had a bad experience. Try everything and more than once. Start with the basics and move up. You'll appreciate it all. LOVE THIS PLACE!
  • This is a really fun family(sometimes family friendly) experience. It takes you through parts of the national Forest to see the scenery. If you don't want to just see trees though you need to take the notch train though. It goes through the mountains and has the best views by far. The only big negative is the management can be a little flaky and unprofessional sometimes. I've seen them arguing with employees and yelling at each other sometimes.
  • Fun! Great for everyone! I went during winter festivities with Santa such a nice production with Santa and elves and who doesn't like complimentary cookies and hot chocolate! Great conductor telling us what we are looking at!
  • Went on the Santa ride with our 2 1/2 year old. It was great! Ride was just over an hour. The people who work there were great from the start when we called to order our tickets until we left after the ride. Santa and his elves were aboard and gave us a visit. We'll go back in the summer to try a ride then too.
