About The Experience

Board your train at Sheepscot station for a 20 minute steam-powered ride through the winter wonderland of Alna to Top of Mountain, to board sleighs and wagons for your trip to SeaLyon Farm where a plethora of goods will be available for perusal and purchase (including their famous lavender products!)

At SeaLyon Farm, visitors will be able to enjoy a bonfire, hot beverages and food from local vendors, and other fun activities. The entire experience takes about 2.5 hours.

Ticket price includes all transportation (historic steam train, extended horse-drawn sleigh ride, and tractor wagon ride) as well as parking at Sheepscot. All food, additional refreshments, and other farm products are sold separately by SeaLyon Farm and their partners. Note that due to the nature of this event, wheelchairs can not be accommodated.

Unfortunately, pets can not be accommodated during this special event.

If you care to engage in outdoor activities, please bring your own skis, snowshoes, or outdoor gear.

Trains depart Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) promptly each hour from 10am to 2pm. Note that the railroad cars are not heated, so please dress accordingly.

NOTE: Exact options and food vendors are subject to adjustment. However, the core event – riding a historic steam powered narrow gauge train to a farm for a sleighride will not change.

We look forward to seeing you on the narrow gauge!

We’re proud that Steam and Sleighs to SeaLyon Farm has been named a top winter train ride by Timeout and Trips to Discover.

About SeaLyon Farm

SeaLyon Farm is situated is beautifully situated amongst the rolling woods and fields of Alna just south of Head Tide and adjacent to the WW&F’s Top of Mountain Station. During Steam & Sleighs, the train will meet sleighs (and wagons) to bring each group to the farm. Everyone will have the opportunity for an extended tour of the farm and countryside aboard a horse-drawn sleigh (or wagon when conditions warrant) while traversing to or from the farm.

In addition to the horse drawn sleigh rides, activities and vendors at SeaLyon farm will include:
– Tasty tater tots from The Wicked Tater.
– An impressive bonfire to keep warm and make s’mores over, along with cornhole, checkers, and tic-tac-toe boards.
– The Farm Store will be selling jams, salsas, lavender products, kettle popcorn, crochet items, and handmade jewelry.
– Visits with the SeaLyon Farm goats: Pumpkin, Lavender, and Honey.
– Tractor hayrides.

After arriving at the farm, hike down to the pond, browse the farm store, enjoy a snack, games and the bonfire. Bring snowshoes or cross country skis to create your own winter adventure. Then ride the sleigh (or wagon) back to the railway station. There will be an approximately 75 minute layover to enjoy the farm (and sleighride) before the narrow gauge train returns you to Sheepscot station.

About the Weather and Cancellations

Obviously, this event is very weather-centric. A decision will be made roughly 3-4 days before each event based upon many factors – including the safety of the horses (who do not navigate well in the mud.) If the ground is frozen (but no snow) horse-drawn wagons will replace the sleighs. If extreme weather (or weather that will produce unsafe conditions for the horses) is predicted, all passengers will be notified via email or phone, and given the option to reschedule or receive a full refund.
