We've mentioned before just how much fun taking a trip on a train in Maine can be. To entice you to not only take some time to enjoy the beauty of a train ride, but also inspire you to donate to a good cause, the folks from the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad,  (who offer scenic tours, special events, family activities) are holding a special "Toys For Tots" fundraiser this Saturday.

"Bring a new unwrapped toy (one per person) to Unity Station (or buy a ticket) and hop aboard! All toys will be given to Waldo County children in need. Departures 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm & 3pm."

What a great way to help your kids take part in giving to someone in need this holiday season, while also taking time to make a really cool memory with them!

The Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad runs out of the train depot at 212 Depot St. in Unity. The drive out to the station is a scenic one, with plenty of gently winding roads.
