‘Covered Wagon in the Snow '
Photographers' Special on the Conway Scenic Railroad
(Boston) - North Conway, NH - Notchland & Return featuring ex-Boston & Maine F7A 4266
There's just something special about a wintertime train excursion! Don’t miss Mass Bay RRE’s ninth annual photographers' special excursion on the Conway Scenic Railroad. Our unique event features multiple photo runbys, this year starring Conway Scenic's classic diesel locomotive Boston & Maine 4266. This locomotive, built by EMD in 1949 and now owned by the 470 Railroad Club of Portland, Maine, was the last "F unit" to operate on the Boston & Maine Railroad in 1976. This style of streamlined locomotive is commonly nicknamed ‘covered wagon’ due to its fully enclosed, round top body, reminiscent of an Old West settler's wagon.
Our excursion will depart from the Conway Scenic’s landmark North Conway station promptly at 10:30 AM, heading north and west through Bartlett to Notchland. There we’ll reverse direction, with the 4266 leading us back to North Conway, making a number of stops, some accessible only by train, so passengers can take photographs and video of the train. Our return to North Conway is scheduled for 4:00 PM.
Our connecting motor coach package offers a guaranteed connection with our train at North Conway. Our rest-room and video-equipped motor coach will leave Boston's South Station at 7:00 AM and the Anderson RTC in Woburn at 7:15 AM.
