Watch The Maine Countryside Whirl By On This Unforgettable Christmas Train

This time of year brings something special to Maine. The weather is chilly, snow is falling and twinkle lights are up on homes throughout the state. But, there’s also something to be said for experiencing the world around us. Watching the trees go by, the snow fall and the wonder in the eyes of children and adults can take the season from nice to absolutely magical. Do just that on this special Victorian train ride.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway is located at 97 Cross Rd., Alna, Maine. And, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that this event is free! There are 9 throughout the day, the first beginning at 10:30 a.m. and the last departing at 3:10 p.m. The bad news? Right now the event is sold out. But that doesn’t mean you can’t attend. Simply check their ticket website often and see if there have been cancellations. If there are, the site will reflect ticket availability. There’s always a chance. And, you can always visit when they’re open to see the museum, which is well worth it.

Learn more about events on their website here or visit them on Facebook. Give them a call on 207- with any questions.
