Operating Schedule

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, $2, 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. 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.

Ghost Trains – Trains depart from 6:45 to 9:00 PM @ Sanders Station
Oct 12 @ 6:45 pm – 9:30 pm

Join us for our final special event of the season. The annual Ghost train is a collaborative effort between our museum and the local eighth grade class. Our train will travel in darkness through the woods where you will encounter ghosts and ghouls, not to mention a large number of jack-o-lanterns. Trains will depart approximately every half hour starting at 6:45 PM. This is often our largest single event of the year, and it can be something of a community party atmosphere while you wait your chance to board the train. Fares are $5 for ages 12 and over, $3 for kids, and babes in arms can ride for free.
