Meredith, NH -- Lakeport – Laconia – Lochmere – Meredith
October 31, 2020

On Saturday, October 31, 2020, the Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts are sponsoring a one-day rail excursion on the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad. The train will run over the former Boston & Maine White Mountains Division from Meredith, New Hampshire south to Lakeport, Laconia and Lochmere. The trip follows the “water level route” through the heart of Weir’s Beach and New Hampshire’s Lakes Region.

The train will stop in Lakeport for a tour of the Freight House Museum, and in Laconia for a tour of the B&M station. The Laconia station is one of only a few remaining 19th-century stations in New Hampshire.

The excursion train leaves Meredith, New Hampshire at 10:00 am and returns at approximately 4:30 pm. Two photo run-bys are included in the trip.

The train will consist of coaches and locomotives from the Hobo and Winnipesaukee Scenic railroads, as well as the parlor car Determination.

Box lunches can be ordered in advance. There is no food service on board the train.

Connecting motor coach service is available from Boston South Station and from the Anderson Transportation Center in Woburn.

Tickets can be ordered on-line here. For additional information, call 978-470-2066.
