September 2013

We have begun to experience some cool nights here in the mountains which can only mean that Fall is on the way, and with Fall comes foliage and our busiest time of the year. Our track crew has been working hard over the course of the summer.  They have just completed the work of rebuilding [...]

August 2013

Thomas the Tank Engine has come and gone now until next year.  We ran 54 round trip trains with our little blue friend over the course of two weekends, and a good time was had by all! We have settled in to our regular schedule of trains.  We offer at least 5 departures every day [...]

July 2013

THOMAS is here!  He arrived on a tractor trailer during the last week of June and is currently resting up in the Roundhouse for the work he has to do, pulling our July Thomas trains. Our regular Valley Train engine, GP7 #573, took a break from working the train during the last week of June [...]

June 2013

We recently made up the summer Valley Train, which is to say that the Notch Train cars are now off the train and the Valley red cars are on.  We just finished up some work on open car #1557 including roof work and touch up painting which allowed us to put it in the consist [...]

March 2013

Opening day is less than six weeks away, and we are all looking forward to being up and running again! The roundhouse crew has just completed work on GP38 #252, and it is now out of stall one.  #252 had a complete 92-day inspection done, and her one year air brake items were attended to.  [...]

February 2013

Here at North Conway and all along our railroad the rails are beginning to get rusty! We prefer a nice high gloss sheen, but I am afraid that the rust will continue to encroach until April 13 when our first trains of the year will once again ply the rails between Conway & Bartlett. Last [...]

January 2013

The 2012 season has come to an official close with the safe and successful operation of the Sixth Annual Steam in the Snow train on Saturday, January 5. This year for the first time in a few years, we actually had a pretty decent amount of snow which made it nice for the photographers who [...]
