The Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad resumes train rides!

Join us for a train ride! While in town, enjoy an ice cream at Conez' (the ice cream shop is located where you will board the train!) or lunch at Mammie’s Restaurant (right across the road from the train station).


As the B&ML re-opens we are doing our part to keep you safe.

  • Frequent & enhanced cleaning throughout our train and stations with particular attention paid to high touch areas.
  • All food will be served in personal containers. Those containers are packaged by local food vendors complying with enhanced food preparation rules. B&ML staff serving will wear gloves and face masks.
  • While the gift shop is available, we ask that you bring your credit card to make purchases.
  • We are providing hand sanitizing hand wipes and surface wipes for your convenience. Please feel free to utilize, but please leave some for other people.

We hope you enjoy your visit and ride at the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad.


Motor Car Rides


No Motorcar Rides Labor Day Due to Weather!

Ride the rails on a motor car with an experienced maintenance of way crew member!

Enjoy this roughly hour long motor car journey where you experience what it was like for maintenance crews to ride the rails. 

A motor car, also known as a speeder was a maintenance of way vehicle (MOW) for railroads. From the motor car and open observation cart, you will get up close and personal with the railroad.

There will be great opportunities for photographs.
