The Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad Train travels from Meredith NH along Meredith Bay. It is a downhill ride most of the way from Meredith to Weirs Beach. Shortly we pass through an area with an unobstructed view of the lake with Mt Belknap in the background. Now we are on a level with the lake and shortly we arrive at Weirs Beach, home of the MV MT Washington. Formerly a summer colony for tourist who would ride up from Boston on the Boston and Maine Railroad where they could disembark to continue their trip along the lake using the the railroad owned steamship, or stay at one of the Weirs Beach Grand Hotels. Now the area is occupied by arcades, amusements and food establishments and is the centerpoint of the Annual Laconia Motorcycle Week event started and held each year since 1923.

After a brief stop to pick up passengers, we continue our ride to Lakeport all the way along the shore of “Paugus Bay” past seasonal residences on the right of the train with the cool blue water of Paugus Bay on the left. Several Marinas are passed through as well as the one mile shoreline of “Southdown Shores”, a gated condominium complex. This complex has one mile of shore line on the lake. We pass through their marina and beach area waving to residents and their friends and arrive at Lakeport the turning point of the ride. There is no station here so passengers relax on board while our engine crew disconnects the locomotive from the trains so it can run around the train.

Lakeport is the only water outlet from the lake. From here all the water from the huge lake flows over a small dam in Laconia/Lakeport to Lake Winnisquam then to Silver Lake in Belmont NH. We offer a History page for those that are interested in the heritage of the railroad line as well as on the Facts of Lake Winnnipesaukeee Facts. We stop to board passengers at the Weirs Beach Station on the Boardwalk, we then leave for the return up the shore towards Meredith. This is at the top of the lake and is the turning point for our train. The locomotive will run around the train and couple to the other end so it can so it can then repeat the trip to Weirs, Lakeport and to Meredith. If you feel that something a little different is what you had in mind, try our Caboose ride tickets or even our caboose charters for your group.
