Get the whole family together for an afternoon of riding the rails

All aboard!

Few things in life are as beautiful as the perfect day in Maine, so get outdoors and enjoy it.

Celebrating over 150 years of railroading, the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad offers some fun weekend trips from their location in Unity.

Just about every weekend, they host fun events, and if you haven’t had the pleasure of a good train ride, this is right up your alley. It really is a treat to experience this, and it can really make a great Saturday road trip.

The sights and beauty of the state of Maine are on full display when you take this exciting experience.

Make lasting memories with a traditional trail ride! Enjoy the beautiful piney woods, rolling fields, and creeks from either the open air observation car, or from the comfort of a classic coach.

This one hour trip is one of their most popular events, so get in on the fun early.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $5 for children, and infants are free.
