    The Conway Scenic Railroad is a great way to spend a few hours. The trip up to Crawford Notch is great, especially the stop on Frankenstein Trestle. The old freight house, by the station, houses a great model railroad that had been featured in MR. The last time I saw it, it was still under re-construction after an extensive expansion. The roundhouse and turntable often have some activity going on there as well. Definitely worth the stop.

    Have a great trip.

    And, further north on Rt. 16 from No Conway and the Conway Scenic RR (about 5 miles further) is Intervale and Hartmann's Railroad shop and train museum. He gives a small discount but his store is impressive (all scales) and the museum is great. If you have kids with you, he has an outdoor railroad to ride on.

    Been to Loudon a couple of times. Last time was for the "Thankgiving Race"
    There used to be an old man that lived on the other side of Crawford Notch(just up from Conway) that had a toy museum and a huge American Flyer/Lionel layout on the second floor. He gave a small tour, the history of toys, then proceeded to run the trains. When I was there the house was up for sale. Don't know if its still around.
    Don't forget the Mt. Washington Cog Railway, the Hobo RR in Lincoln!

    Seashore Trolley museum in Kennebunk port Maine. Not too far from Loudon (about 1.5 hours).
    Ill be racing at New England Dragway this weekend so I'll have to miss the round- and- round race this year.
    Have fun for me!:D

    hobby shop

    Guys I thought I'd bring this back to the top for maybe a last minute post about a HOBBY SHOP in this area. I'm going to try to get to at least one of the sites you guys put up but with the time trails Busch and then Winston cup race I think getting around without traffic is going to be pretty difficult.
