Sheepscot Valley Steam Train

Step aboard and connect with the soul of Maine.

Quick Details

Adult Ages 13+
Youth Ages 4-12
Child Ages 3 and under

Ride the historic WW&F “narrow gauge” railway – one of Midcoast Maine’s hidden gems – on a seven-mile (round trip) steam train excursion.

About The Experience

Board your train at Sheepscot station for a steam-powered ride through the wild pine forests, farmlands and hamlets of the Sheepscot Valley to Trout Brook. After a layover to allow the locomotive to “run-around” the train, we’ll return back to Sheepscot station where you’ll want to explore our railyard, examine our displays, and peruse our gift shop.

  • Ticket price includes the steam train ride as well as parking at Sheepscot.
  • Passengers requiring extra assistance, including those in wheelchairs can be accommodated on this train.
  • Small, well-behaved dogs are allowed at the discretion of the Conductor (limit 1 per train; first come first served.)

Sheepscot Valley Steam Trains depart Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) promptly at their scheduled times.

We look forward to seeing you on the narrow gauge!

Caboose Adventure

Ride the Sheepscot Valley Steam Train in your very own caboose!

Bring your family (or small group) for unique ride on the narrow gauge railroad! Your group (of up to 15 people) gets exclusive access to the “little red caboose” along the WW&F railway. And yes, you can ride “up top” in the cupola (although adults will need to watch their heads!)

Note that the caboose is not available for all dates/times. To reserve the caboose, railroad car, or the entire railroad for your special event, please email [email protected].


The Sheepscot Valley Steam Train does not include connecting service to SeaLyon Farm (or admission to any special event) which may or may not be occurring simultaneously on the day of your visit.

While we endeavor to operate all Sheepscot Valley Steam Train excursions to Trout Brook Preserve on the newly-opened Mountain Extension, some trains may not be able to traverse this portion of the railroad due to mechanical concerns, weather conditions, and other challenges facing a 130+ year old steam locomotive.
