Unfortunately it was a very wet day but a lot of people of many nationalities braved the weather to ride the train. There was a short commentary but most of the time we just looked at the lake & the properties beside the track. The carriage was decorated with fall foliage -a nice touch.

We took the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad train ride around Lake Winnipesaukee to see the Beautiful Foliage and it was a wonderful experience. It was an all day affair.

We rode this in October and enjoyed the wonderful scenery from Meredith up to Plymouth and back. About a five hour ride along the lake and later along a river. They stop at The Common Man Inn in Plymouth for lunch where everyone goes in for a nice buffet lunch before heading back to Meredith. A very relaxing ride on... More

Nice slow one hour ride around the lake. Good views....close to the lake. No food on the train in October. Found it MUCH better than the Down East Scenic RR in Ellsworth.

We took a short ride from Weirs Beach to Meredith and back. Nice views of the lake and a fun trip for the kids. The conductor and the balloon maker were very friendly and made the trip all the more enjoyable. It was unique and I recommend for kids.
