You will by riding in one of three beautifully restored Pullman dining cars, enjoying five courses of fine food and spirits served to you in European style. With salad greens, herbs and edible flowers fresh from our gardens: always fresh meats, poultry, seafood and homemade rolls through dessert, you are guaranteed the unusual and the delicious. As dinner is served, period music keeps time with the rail's rhythmic rumbling, punctuated by the haunting wail of the engine's whistle. With magnificent mountains and lush New England forests surrounding The Café Lafayette Dinner Train, you are assured of having the best seat in the house, all evening long. After dinner, with the compartment lights down low and the dramatic sunset outside your window, you may allow yourself a wistful romantic journey back in time, and you might wish the evening would never end.
The two-hour, 20 mile round trip will take you on a spur of the historic Boston and Maine Railroad laid in the late 1800's to serve the historic "Grand" Hotels of the region. We guarantee you'll be swept away into a bygone era.
Three unique dining cars offer spectacular views of the picturesque Pemigewasset River with its surrounding fields and forests. In the spring and summer keep your eyes peeled for moose, deer and bear while waving to the canoes and Kayakers floating lazily down the river. Observe the spectacular foliage right outside your window in the fall. 6000 watts of halogen flood lights illuminate the outside scenery for excellent nighttime viewing all year long. The train travels rain, sleet or shine so don't worry about the weather because its always sunny and warm inside.
