The Brooks Preservation Society and the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad welcome you to take our trains to/from the Common Ground Country Fair the 3rd weekend after Labor day in September. 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.

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:

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