“Beautiful scenic rail tour”
Until a decade after the end of the Civil War, stagecoaches were the preferred method of transportation to the North Conway area. The rail line from Conway to North Conway was completed from Conway on June 3, 1872, during the administration of President Ulysses S. Grant and extended to Intervale in October 1874. That same year, the Portsmouth, Great Falls and Conway Railroad built the North Conway station. Noted architect Nathaniel J. Bradlee of Boston designed the beautiful structure, which has changed little since it was built. The station measured 30 feet by 100 feet and housed separate men's and ladies' waiting rooms, a ticket office, baggage room and restrooms. Two curving mahogany staircases led to offices in metal sheathed domed towers on the second level. An E. Howard, eight-day clock was installed in the face of the building facing the park.
Fantastic trip. Views were awesome and people were very friendly. I hour layover wasn't clear on website. Dome car was so exciting.
Best Thing to do Either as a Family Event Or for A Romantic date With someone Special. ( Do the Dome Seating, it's worth the extra $ ). Good food and a Good time. Done it Several times. And I've never been Disappointed.
