Granite State Scenic Railway

Hop aboard an unforgettable journey with the Granite State Scenic Railway, 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 you will experience memories and adventures with family and friends.
