2024 Operating Schedule

Schedule Coming Soon

Our operating schedule for the year is finalized at out board of directors meeting in May each year. Our 2024 operating scheduled should be published by early May. Until that time we can advise that the schedule is likey to begin on either Memorial Day or Father’s Day weekend. From July through September we typically operate every other weekend beginning with the Fourth of July Weekend.

That being said, the Sandy River experienced a major flood event on Deceber 18 that resulted in extensive damages to our boarding platforms, gift shop and the roadbed itself. A small section of the line closest to the river has washed out and rquires new ties and ballast. Operations will not be possible until we are able to address these issues. As of February 22nd the line is under a foot of snow and the ground is frozen. We cannot begin to address these issues until warmer weather arrives. Please contact us if you would like to contribute time or money towards the costs of these repairs.

Our trains operate on the original railroad right of way and stop at the southern end of the line where our roundhouse, rolling stock and a number of original structures from the railroad are located. Feel free to make use of our picnic grove, which is also located at the southern end of the line.

Fares are $7 per adult or child age 13 and older, $3, for children under 13, and children under 6 may ride for free. Please note that all trains run subject to the availability of equipment and manpower. You may also contact us by telephone on scheduled operating days between 11 AM and closing time by calling 207-639-2228. Group rates are available for large groups on normal operating dates, and charter rates are available for dates that are not on our published operating calendar. We can accommodate groups of up to 100 and would love to host your group for a special day of narrow gauge railroading. Please contact us for information or to book your event.
