Hobo Railroad

Hobo Railroad – 64 Railroad Street, Lincoln, NH

The Hobo Railroad is a family-owned and operated Tourist Railroad located at the southern entrance to New Hampshire’s popular White Mountain region in the village of Lincoln, NH. We offer old-fashioned, 80-minute round-trip train rides along the winding Pemigewasset River in a natural woodsy setting starting in late-May through October and again from Thanksgiving through late December.

Departing Hobo Junction Station in our restored vintage coaches, you’ll travel along the banks of the Pemigewasset River on a historic rail system that dates back to the late 1800’s when logging was the area’s primary industry. Along the way, you may see kayakers and fishermen enjoying the river during the spring and summer months, while the colors of Autumn take center stage throughout the Fall Foliage season from mid-September through late October. Once the leaves fall and the snow begins to fly, Santa joins us for our popular Santa Express Trains on weekends.

A variety of snacks, ice cream treats, soft drinks and bottled water along with train-related gifts, apparel, post cards and collectibles are available in our Hobo Junction Gift Shop. Although Hobo Picnic lunches are no longer available, you’re certainly welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the train. All we ask is that you please bring off the train whatever you bring on the train.
