The rail line began here in 1872 and in 1874 the station, much as you see it now was built. The station, a Victorian style, measured 30 feet by 100 feet and housed separate men's and ladies' waiting rooms, a ticket office, baggage room and restrooms. Two curving mahogany staircases led to offices in metal sheathed domed towers on the second level. From then until December 1961 there was passenger service, and freight service lasted until October 1972. The Conway Scenic Railroad restored and reopened the station in 1974 for seasonal scenic tours of the Mt. Washington valley. Today there are two runs you can take. One is the valley tour and is either 11 or 21 miles depending on the date and time, and the other is called the Notch Train. It is a five hour run departing at 11 am. Both trains offer several meal offerings, from box lunches to first class dining. Check their site for prices.
The museum is the entire station. All around are beautiful diplays of things that made this such a special place. And best of all it is free.
