A trip to the Maine coast is all about relaxing while the salty breeze lifts your spirits - so why not park your car to begin your vacation? With a Maine Eastern Railroad excursion, you can leave the car and the traffic behind and get on board one of our restored railcars to enjoy carefree fun in a unique way while you experience the spectacular views of the Maine coast.

Come aboard our restored vintage railcars for a scenic journey through the spectacular sights of Mid-Coast Maine. Seaside villages, lobster boats, tidewater wildlife, and magnificent foliage create a picturesque landscape for our excursion route. The Mid-Coast region offers adventure, world-class arts and culture, and stunning scenic vistas. A relaxing excursion aboard the Maine Eastern Railroad is a ticket to the best that the Mid-Coast region has to offer. Along the way, you'll spot charming seaside villages, sailboats tacking in the breeze, swooping gulls soaring overhead, and during the fall, trees that glow with a kaleidoscope of color.

The Maine Eastern passenger fleet is comprised of streamlined locomotives and stainless steel railcars from the Art Deco era of the 1940s and 1950s. This equipment has been fully restored and rebuilt to today's standards of safety and comfort, and provides a perfect social setting for lively conversation about the scenery and historic highlights of the 56.6-mile route between Brunswick and Rockland, Maine. 

Passengers from Portland, Boston, and other southern New England points who enjoy the allure of rail travel can reach Brunswick via Amtrak’s Downeaster.

Welcome aboard the Maine Eastern Railroad, and we hope you will enjoy your journey through Maine’s Mid-Coast!
