Handcar Hops!

September 19 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM


Your group of 2-4 (ages 12 and up) get a self-powered 90-minute handcar (aka “pump car”) tour of the WW&F mainline. Bring your muscles, because the length and speed of the ride is all up to you!

A WW&F Volunteer will be your guide and “brakeman” to ensure safe operation of the handcar over the entire 3 mile railroad.

Due to the nature of the unique (but extremely fun) activity, those with mobility or physical limitations can not participate. There can be no “passengers” on the handcar, and all participants must be tall enough to safely and firmly grasp the moving handbar at all times.

Price is $125 for 90 minutes of a groups of 2-4 participants. A signed waver of liabilty will be required.

Handcar Hops depart Sheepscot Station at 9:00 and 11:00AM on 8/22, 9/5, and 9/19.
