2022 Operating Schedule

Final Three Weekends

Our 2022 operating season comes to a close on Sunday October 16. Trains will be operating the first three weekends of the month and the foliage is beginning to turn. The foliage usually remains strong through our final weekend of operations.

Our trains operate on the original railroad right of way and stop at the southern end of the line where are 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.

Fall Foliage Trains 11 AM – 3 PM @ Sanders Station
Oct 8 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Fall foliage historically peaks for us around the first weekend of October, but remains strong through the middle of the month. Our entire rail line passes through a forest predominantly consisting of deciduous trees, which tends to make for a colorful ride.

Trains will depart Sanders station on the hour from 11 AM through 3 PM. You are free to depart on one train and return on a later train should you wish to make use of our picnic grove or simply spend more time exploring the roundhouse and other nearby buildings preserved from the original railroad. The last return train departs the roundhouse area at approximately 3:45 PM.

Ghost Trains – Trains depart from 6:45 to 9:00 PM @ Sanders Station
Oct 8 @ 6:45 pm – 9:30 pm

Join us for our final special event of the season. The annual Ghost train is a collaborative effort between our museum and the local eighth grade class. Our train will travel in darkness through the woods where you will encounter ghosts and ghouls, not to mention a large number of jack-o-lanterns. Trains will depart approximately every half hour starting at 6:45 PM. This is often our largest single event of the year, and it can be something of a community party atmosphere while you wait your chance to board the train. Fares are $5 for ages 12 and over, $3 for kids, and babes in arms can ride for free.
