The Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad is located in the village of Meredith, NH at the northern end of Lake Winnipesaukee with a satellite ticket booth located on the historic Boardwalk at Weirs Beach, NH. Operating on a rail system that was once home to the famous Boston, Concord & Montreal line that dates back to 1848, we offer 1-hour and 2-hour old-fashioned train rides along the western shore of NH’s largest lake from Meredith to Weirs Beach (located in the middle of our route) to Lakeport and back.

From our Meredith Station, you can enjoy 2-hour train rides along the lake shore, while 1-hour train rides are available from our Weirs Beach location – all train rides are round trip, and all of our trains operate rain or shine. Available daily throughout the summer months and weekends during the spring and fall, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the lake on one side of the train, and views of beautiful vacation homes can be seen on the other side.
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 Meredith Station 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 whatever you bring on the train, you please bring off the train.
