2021 Operating Schedule

Resumption of Operations

Operations were cancelled for August 20 due to some necessary track repairs. Those repairs have been successfully implemented and we will be running as originally scheduled on Friday August 20.

Our Schedule

The Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad operates on selected weekends from the fourth of July through mid October. Our trains operate on the original railroad right of way and stop at the southern end of the line where are roundhouse, rolling stock and a number of original structures from the railroad are located. Feel free to make use of our picnic grove, which is also located at the southern end of the line.

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.
