This is a photographers’ special train, operated in conjunction with the Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts. Ride from North Conway Village to Notchland Inn in Crawford Notch and return with vintage 0-6-0 Steam Engine 7470 in the lead. There will be multiple photo stops on the return trip when passengers who wish to get off the train can photograph “run-bys” of the engine coming down the tracks in various locations.
The train departs North Conway at 10:30 a.m. and returns at 4:00. Coach and First Class seating are available. Box lunches may also be purchased with advance reservations. Tickets are on sale now.
This is the 8th Annual Steam in the Snow event, and it will sell out, especially since #7470 will be out of service for at least a year after the event for a major, Federally-mandated overhaul.
