A Blueberry Crisp Summer Experience!
Board your train at Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) for a 15 minute steam-powered ride through the wild pine forests, farmlands and hamlets of the Sheepscot Valley to Alna Center for a yummy treat!
We’ve partnered with Fields Fields Organic Wild Blueberries to give a short (20-30 min) presentation on Maine’s wild fruit. And, on site, they’ll be cooking up a fresh batch of homemade, organic, gluten free, wild Blueberry Crisp to be enjoyed amidst the gorgeous field at Alna Center.
Afterwards, we’ll all 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, the blueberry presentation, a generous serving of homemade blueberry crisp, as well as parking at Sheepscot. Additional farm stand and assorted blueberry products will be available for your consideration.
The Wild Blueberry Express does not include a train ride on the “Mountain Extension” to Trout Brook. Please refer to the Sheepscot Valley Steam Train for trips that extend to that destination.
Note that passengers in wheelchairs can not be accommodated on this train. Small, well-behaved dogs are allowed at the discretion of the Conductor.
We look forward to seeing you on the narrow gauge!
