All Aboard for Mass Bay RRE’s Exclusive

'Lochmere Limited'
on the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad

(Boston) - Meredith, NH - Lakeport - Laconia - Lochmere - Meredith

Saturday, May 16, 2020 ONLY!!

Winnipesaukee Scenic trainMass Bay RRE's 2020 train excursion program continues with a return to the rails of the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad in the scenic Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Join us for this special round-trip excursion over the former Boston & Maine “White Mountains Division” from Meredith south to Lakeport, Laconia and Lochmere, the southern limit of the Winnepesaukee Scenic’s operating authority.

Our trip will originate at 10:00 AM in Meredith, NH at the headquarters of the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad. We'll follow a “water level route” through the heart of New Hampshire's scenic Lakes Region to Lakeport, where we’ll stop to tour the Lakeport Freight House Museum. Then we’ll cross the Lakeport drawbridge and continue southward to Laconia, where we’ll stop to tour the historic Laconia B&M Station, one of the only 19th-century stations of this scale and architectural sophistication to survive in the state. Our journey then continues, skirting the shores of Lake Winnesquam, to Silver Lake Road in the town of Belmont, NH. There we’ll have two photo runbys before returning to Meredeth.
