The Conway Recreation Department will be taking an Adult trip to ride the Fall Foliage train in Meredith NH. On Saturday, September 24th. The cost of the trip is $75.00 per person and includes the following:
Fall Foliage Special
Our popular 4-hour Fall Foliage Specials depart Meredith Station at 11:00am and proceed north where we’ll travel up and over Ashland Summit. We’ll then cross the Ashland High Trestle, and pass through the Bonnie Brae Deer Farm and the Glove Hollow Christmas Tree Farm in Bridgewater before arriving in Plymouth, NH.
The Common Man Inn & Spa, located in Plymouth’s North End is our destination. Once there, we’ll step off the train and gather in the dining room to enjoy a tasty, hot buffet lunch. Following lunch, you’re welcome to explore the Common Man Inn’s extensive Gift Shop which is filled with NH-made products before returning to the train.
Hot Buffet Menu (items subject to change): Hot Soup, Roast Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Cranberry Sauce, Butternut Squash; Meat Lasagna; Vegi Stir Fry & Rolls & Butter. An assortment of fresh baked cookies will be on each table for dessert. A variety of chilled, bottled soft drinks & water, as well as hot tea & coffee, will also be available.
When lunch is over and everyone has re-boarded the train, we’ll depart the Common Man Inn & Spa and proceed south through Plymouth and Bridgewater again before stopping in Ashland, NH at the restored Boston, Concord & Montreal Railroad Station. Upon arrival, members of the Ashland Historical Society, dressed in 1860’s attire, will greet us and provide guided tours of their historic station.
Following the guided tours in Ashland, we’ll re-board the train for the final time, then continue south over Ashland Summit, pass Lake Waukewan and make our way to Meredith Station where we’ll arrive just after 3:00pm.
