About This Trip

Embark on an unforgettable journey with the Granite State Scenic Railway, a Patriot Rail Company Excursion, located in Lincoln, NH, at the southern entrance to New Hampshire’s enchanting White Mountain region. Offering scenic 80-minute round-trip train rides along the picturesque Pemigewasset River, our scenic trains travel approximately 15 miles through a serene, wooded setting. Operating from late May through October and from Thanksgiving through December, our vintage coaches will transport you back in time on a historic rail system dating back to the late 1800s.

Enjoy the sight of swimmers, kayakers, and fishermen during the warmer months, marvel at the vibrant Autumn foliage from September through October, and delight in the magic of our Santa Express Trains once the snow falls. Departing from Lincoln, this scenic rail adventure promises an unforgettable experience for the whole family. Buy your tickets today and join us on the Granite State Scenic Railway!

A variety of snacks, ice cream treats, Pepsi-branded soft drinks, and bottled water, along with train-related gifts, apparel, postcards, and collectibles, are available in our Granite State Scenic Railway Gift Shop. You’re welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the train; we just ask that you take all your belongings with you when you leave.
