Along with our fall steam trains, we have several special events planned this month:

Saturday & Sunday, October 12th & 13th—Pumpkin Trains! Ride our steam train to Top of the Mountain, where you can can either board a hay ride or take a short walk to SeaLyon Farm. At the farm, you can explore their pumpkin patch and pick your own pumpkin(s) to purchase and take home, as well as participate in other fun activities. Train rides to, farm visit and return train trip will take about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

Friday through Monday, October 11th through 14th—Fall Work Weekend! Join us as we make history on the Sheepscot Valley Narrow Gauge during our 2019 Fall Work Weekend. Our volunteers will build 2,000+ feet of new track down the Mountain and across Trout Brook toward Route 218. Join members and friends from around the country as we complete our 3-4 mile railway extension which will open in 2021.

Saturday, October 19th—Ride the Rails to Hike the Trails! Join the Midcoast Conservancy to ride our noon steam train from Sheepscot to Top of the Mountain, where hikers will detrain for a 1 hour +/- hike through the Conservancy’s Trout Brook Preserve.
