As a non train enthusiast I was quite surprised at the fun short ride and greatly informative crew that run this railroad and museum site. Very well put together historical stories with funny anicdotes added.

As a discerning overseas railway enthusiast I was looking forward to my visit to this famous site, and I was not disappointed. Unfortunately the steam locomotive was out of service but this did not detract from the overall experience. The line is built on part of the trackbed of the old Sandy River & Rangely Lakes Railroad that operated through the inter-war period. There is a lot of historic equipment on site. The staff were friendly and helpful and I was allowed full access to all areas, allowing me to see and photograph everything of interest at my leisure. This operation deserves more public support to enable it to fulfill its aims of preserving a significant aspect of Maine history.

We brought two 9-year olds here on a whim and were really surprised by how much we learned and enjoyed the trip! There is a small museum with antiques and information about the rail system here from the 1870s to 1936. The tickets were very inexpensive ($6 for adults, $1 for kids). There were a couple of stops along the route where the conductor gave us quite a bit of information and stories, answered questions and even let the kids try out the railway maintenance trolley cart. It was a perfect, short outing if you’re also in the area to hike to Daggett Rock or any of the area’s other attractions. There are port-a-potties and picnic tables too.

It's clear that everyone at the SRRLR loves what they are doing and have a passion for it! We learned so much and enjoyed learning the history of the narrow gauge railroad! We'd consider it the best $12 we've spent on a vacation! This is well worth visiting! I wish we were closer so we could come ride the Ghost Train!!
