Come with us to see Nature’s most colorful show…fall foliage in New England – and what better way to enjoy it than from our train journey that takes us past some of the finest natural scenery in the East – sheer bluffs, steep ravines, cascading brooks and streams, wide mountain vistas and across the famous Frankenstein Trestle and Willey Brook Bridge, both engineering marvels of the early 20th Century.  To top it all is literally to go to the top of it all, as we board our cog railroad to ride to the top of Mt. Washington, the highest point in New England.  Combine all of these natural wonders with the hustle and bustle of New York City and the simple life of the Amish and you have the trip of a lifetime.
