Operating Schedule

Thank you for your patronage – hope to see you again next year

Our 2018 operating season has come to a close. We would like to extend our thanks to all of the visitors and volunteers who made this a successful season, and look forward to welcoming you again in 2019. Our 2019 operating schedule should be posted shortly.


The Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad operates most weekends from Memorial Day through mid October. Fares are $6 per adult or child age 13 and older, $1, for children under 13, and children under 6 may ride for free. Please note that all trains run subject to the availability of equipment and manpower; if steam is the primary focus of your visit then we suggest calling in advance. You may also contact us by telephone on scheduled operating days between 11 AM and closing time by calling 207-639-2228. Group rates are available for large groups on normal operating dates, and charter rates are available for dates that are not on our published operating calendar. We can accommodate groups of up to 100 and would love to host your group for a special day of narrow gauge railroading. Please contact us for information or to book your event.

Ice Cream Trains

New for 2018, ice cream trains will operate on the afternoon trains of selected Sundays at 1, 2 and 3 PM. There is an extra $1 fare for these trains. Ice cream will be served to ticket holders at the stop on the south end of our line. Shaded picnic tables are available for your enjoyment.

2018 Steam Operations

Steam locomotive Monson #3 is currently laid up in need of boiler repairs. At present we do not have an estimated date for its return to Phillips. Trains will be operating with our replica locomotive #4 until further notice.
