The scenery was beautiful along the waters. We went on the dinner train and really enjoyed the meal. It was carved right at out tables. Very nice touches.

I took my two teenage daughters for the first time this summer and we had a blast! The hobo lunch was quite good and we had the entire Caboose to ourselves! I highly recommend this activity and I wish we had done it sooner!

It was an excellent meal with a great staff. Unfortunately it was not a great foliage year but it was still a nice ride. If you are looking for a classic train ride this is a great opportunity.

We were a large group that took this tour. Amongst ourselves we had a blast but the train was a bit disappointing. We knew it wasn’t a fancy experience and that was just fine with us but the whole experience is a tad over rated....More

Spending a beautiful fall weekend in the area. Found an add for the train ride at our hotel. Reasonably priced. Beautiful views. All staff were wonderful. Train was enclosed for a windy day but windows also opened if needed. Enjoyed the rude and the views.

We opted for the one hour trip since we had a 2 and 4 year old along; two hours would have been too much. We saw a different perspective of the area and the little ones got to ride the train. Thankfully the staff brought...More

We had a wonderful time on the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad with a delicious Turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Just like Thanksgiving. The food was great and the people that served the dinner did an excellent job. I would recommend this trip.

We took the 2 hour ride out of Weir’s Beach, in a fairly empty car and had a good time. My friends enjoyed the pre-prepared sandwich that was on the menu (cash only while aboard)(and no bar car). The train does rock a bit and...More

Best to check the website. You will see the schedule when you look for tickets, the train runs mostly on weekends in the fall. Looks like there are 3 options for excursions.

I think shortest is two hours, but do a search for the "Hobo Railroad" and then navigate to the Winnipesaukee RR from there. (same owners)
