Description

Winter Trains??? On Dec 17th, 2018 around noon I saw a single engine plowing the tracks through the "cut" at the top of the notch. (By Elephant Head) and can only assume the engine cleared the whole way from Bartlett through the notch. Later in the winter of 2018-19 the tracks became totally filled in.  Whether  The Conway Scenic Railroad ("CSR") might run winter (Christmas???) trains in years of low snowfall is not known. Act accordingly.  R Hall NH Admin.

Up the road from North Conway and Frankenstein you can find a multitude of beautiful meandering lines and some hard stuff too.

Getting There

302 north from N. Conway or 302 south from i-93.

The sub-areas are described, roughly, south-to-north by the location of their access routes.
