Excursion fee: $315.00 including Friday evening accommodation
EC(s): Dan Peck & the NEREX Team

NEREX is pleased to announce a 2 day overnight excursion in New Hampshire.
On Friday we will set on at Hazens, NH. as we did last year. We will have a portapotty at the seton. From here we will proceed East on the former Maine Central Mountain Division. Our journey takes us through Crawford Notch, over the Willey Brook and Frankenstein trestles, down the mountain, through Bartlett, and Mountain Junction, to end of track in Redstone, where we turn and head back to Mountain Junction. 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.
DUE TO TIGHT ACCOMODATIONS IN NORTH CONWAY FRIDAY EVENING, REGISTRATION CLOSES AT THE END OF THE DAY AUGUST 17th , AT WHICH TIME WE NEED TO MAKE OUR HOTEL COMMITMENT. ANY REGISTRATIONS RECEIVED AFTER THAT DATE WILL BE SUBJECT TO ROOM AVAILABILITY.
EC for this excursion will be Dan Peck, along with the NEREX Team.
