From Mountain Junction we head South on the old Boston & Maine Conway Branch, through North Conway Depot and on to Conway, a distance of about seven mile. We turn at Conway and head North to our overnight tie down in North Conway.
Our tie down is behind our included Friday night accommodation at the Hampton Inn & Suites, situated next to the tracks, 2 or 3 miles South of North Conway depot. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the Hampton Inn. The hotel is hosting a wine and cheese reception for our group on the main floor upon arrival. Overnight security for the cars is being provided. Mileage for the day, will be about 63 miles.
On Saturday we depart the hotel for North Conway Depot where we will have a brief stop so everyone can take in what is to be seen at this historic location, also ground zero for Conway Scenic Railroad operations. From here we depart for our return trip up the mountain to Hazens in time for early afternoon setoff. Mileage for the day will be about 44 miles. For those of you thinking of staying through Sunday, you might want to consider Mount Washington Cog Railway on Sunday, or perhaps the Conway Scenic dinner train Saturday evening.
Even though it is early foliage season, we may see some evidence of the storied New England Fall foliage color.
Come ride with NEREX and have a fabulous time as we explore the Conway Scenic Railroad.
There will be a 30 car limit for this excursion. No hyrail trucks allowed, RR rules.
