Seashore Trolley Museum will offer holiday railway rides, shopping, and complimentary refreshments during both of Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude weekends, starting on Friday afternoons and continuing all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Museum will offer railway rides on Friday afternoons from 1 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. The rides continue on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Ride on a restored electric streetcar over the Museum’s railway through the scenic Maine woods. Mother Nature determines if there’s snow or not on the ground, but we’ll be in the holiday spirit. Take a break from hustle and bustle of the holiday shopping and bring the family to enjoy a unique and wonderful ride. Don’t worry if it’s cold outside, our streetcars will be toasty warm and waiting for you. So come on by and unwind.
Seashore’s historic railway runs for 3 miles along the Kennebunkport-to-Biddeford portion of the Atlantic Shore line Railway, which operated from 1904 to 1927.
Throughout that time, the Atlantic Shore Line was an essential transportation link carrying residents and tourists to work, school, as well as recreation and shopping destinations.
Refreshments and holiday shopping complete a Prelude visit at Seashore Trolley Museum.
The Museum store will be open from noon until 4 p.m. on Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays of the festive Prelude holiday weekends.
The store features a large selection of rail-related gifts including books for kids and adults, toys, collectibles, DVDs and memorabilia.
Rides $6. Admission and refreshments complementary.
