Use our trains for convenient travel to the Common Ground Country Fair.  Avoid long traffic lines and long walks! 

The Brooks Preservation Society and the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad welcome you to take our trains to/from the Common Ground Country Fair this September 21, 22, and 23. Our two train schedule offers convenient access from our Unity or Thorndike parking areas to our station right off the fairground commons and you avoid traffic congestion at the fair. 

Your train or train-fair combo ticket is valid for any train for the day of purchase or use.  This is more than a round trip ticket, this allows  you travel back to your car if you forget something and get back to the fair.

Please see our schedule for departure times.

Passengers can board trains 10 minutes before scheduled departure.Trains must leave on schedule so please arrive at least 20 minutes before departure to park and purchase tickets!

Please Note:

  • Our operation is not handicap accessible
  • No additional discounts will be applied to the combination Fair Admission/Train ticket.
  • Seating is subject to space and availability at time of departure.
  • All train riders who wish to disembark at our Common Ground Country Fair Station must have a Fair Admission ticket
    • Valid tickets include fair tickets purchased in advance, a combo Fair/Train ticket, or a current MOFGA membership card.
    • Our station on the fairgrounds is not near the Volunteer Check-In tent, so a fair admission ticket will be required to get admission to the grounds, even if volunteering or renewing memberships.

The Railroad reserves the right to change train equipment and schedules without advance notice. The railroad cannot be responsible for unscheduled delays.
