We offer 80-minute round-trip train rides along the Pemigewasset River from Lincoln to Woodstock, NH starting in mid-May and operating through late October. Your guests will travel in restored vintage coaches while enjoying kayakers and fishermen enjoying the river during the summer months and the colors of Autumn throughout the Fall Foliage season that runs from mid-September through late October.

The Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad offers 1- and 2-hour round-trip train rides along the western shore of New Hampshire’s largest lake from mid-May through late October.
