Fall Project – Late October – Kiwanis Autumn Express
One of our members Russ Seybold loans us his train from the Conway Scenic Railroad for a fantastic five hour foliage excursion from North Conway to Crawford Notch. We take 5 x 7″ photos of departing guests, frame them and deliver them on board. Kiwanis hosts serve delicious appetizers on the way up while a narrator tells the story of the railroad and the scenery along the way.
Lunch is either a box lunch or lunch at the Appalachian Mountain Club in Crawford Notch. There are stops along the way to photograph the train coming round the bend at full speed and to visit the old Evans homestead and Hattie’s garden.
First class passengers can take advantage of the dining car and full bar. Train accommodations include a glass dome, first class and coach. There is an open air car for photographers. On the way home, visitors are treated to a wide array of desserts and a chance on a raffle.
