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).

BML Train Ride


Save time and walking by using our trains for quick access to the Common Ground Country Fair.

Buy your tickets (Train and Fair or just Train) from us and use our trains for a unique and convenient way to get to the Common Ground Country Fair.  Our fairground platform is just off the commons just behind the administrative buildings.

We have two trains operating all day on convenient schedules and our stations are only 10 to 15 minutes from the fair grounds.

Park your vehicle at either our Unity or Thorndike parking and boarding areas to ride our trains. Our trains have convenient schedules. 

Tickets are good for any train during the day of purchase!  This is more than a round trip ticket, it allows  you to travel back to your car if you forget something and get back to the fair.

Tickets sold at our boarding areas in Unity and Thorndike on the day of the fair.
