This special excursion through Crawford Notch is the last Notch Train excursion of the year and will be hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Washington Valley. It is a fundraiser to benefit local children’s charities, and the public is warmly invited to participate.

The train departs from our North Conway station at 11:00 a.m. and returns at approximately 4:00 p.m. Included in the excursion is an hour’s layover at Crawford Station, which is across from Saco Lake (a small pond from which the the mighty Saco River originates) and adjacent to the AMC’s Highland Center. Passengers are encouraged to get off the train, stretch their legs, and explore their beautiful surroundings.

Fares: Coach $52.00; First Class $67.00. Included in these fares are appetizers, desserts, and a souvenir photo. Children under 13 ride FREE in Coach when accompanied by a paying adult.  Passengers have the option of ordering a delicious box lunch prepared by Brandli’s Pizza Pasta Grille for $13.00, bringing their own picnic, or ordering from our snack bar.

For those wanting lunch aboard the Railroad’s elegant new, First Class Dining Car The Hattie Evans, our First Class Notch Train package includes First Class seating and lunch, as well as beverage service, appetizers, desserts, and a souvenir photo. The F/C package is $93.00 ($116.00 with seating in the Upper Dome, which is considered Premium Seating). Seating is limited, and advance reservations are recommended. This event sold out last year!

Please plan to join us for a fun-filled day that will benefit this very worthy organization.
