The Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company and Museum is pleased to announce it will be open weekends beginning March 24, 2012. The museum is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m., with train rides on the hour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. In addition to train rides, the museum offers exhibits on Maine Narrow Gauge history along with newly expanded activities for children. The popular child-sized play train now includes dress up clothing for children and railroad tickets with hand punches so children can explore railroad history through imaginary play. “We look forward to offering lots of hands on activities for children this season, who make up a large part of our audience.” said Executive Director, Allison Tevsh Zittel. “Our goal is to provide a safe and fun educational environment where visitors can learn more about railroad history in the State of Maine.” Children of all ages are encouraged to visit for a train ride and explore the museum.
