Fall Project – Late October – Kiwanis Autumn Express
Conway Scenic Railroad owners, Dave & Rhonda Swirk, loan us their train for a fantastic, five hour foliage excursion from North Conway through Crawford Notch each October. 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 pre-ordered box lunch, sandwiches from the on board Snack Bar or dining car options for a three-course meal on the train.
First Class passengers can take advantage of the dining cars 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. 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.
