  • Very cute and fun, I think this would be a great time out for a group of kiddos, but me and my boyfriend enjoyed it as adults as well. We got the VIP tickets and enjoyed the free beverage and snack. Train ride was short but you can ride as many times as you want with the ticket.
  • These trains are beautifully restored and run a short trip around Portland's East End. Don't miss their Polar Express train during the Christmas season. Music, dramatic readings from the book, friendly elves and of course Santa himself. Designed for little kids and it's and adventure they'll never forget. Upgrade to first class, and the kiddos get a "golden ticket" and their own jingle bell as well as slightly (it is narrow gauge after all) seating. Highly recommended!
