What happens when you combine three really cool things? You get a great Saturday adventure that the whole family can enjoy.

Celebrating over 150 years of railroading, the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad offers some fun weekend trips from their location in Unity. Just about every weekend, they host fun events, and if you haven’t had the pleasure of a good train ride, this is right up your alley. It really is a treat to experience this, and it can really make a great Saturday road trip. The sights and beauty of the state of Maine are on full display when you take this exciting experience.

As we head into the homestretch of summer, there are just two Pizza and Whoopie Pie Train Rides left!. Enjoy some pizza, and Maine’s number one dessert, the whoopie pie, a beverage, plus, a ride on the scenic Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad.

This is one of their most popular events, so don't miss the final two of the summer!

Tickets are $28 for adults, $18 for children, and infants are free.

Here is the upcoming schedule:

Saturday, August 12th 11am-12:15pm
Saturday, August 26th 11am-12:15pm

While you are there, you can also enjoy the day with some ice cream at Conez, which is right where you board the train, or lunch at the fantastic Mammie’s Restaurant, which is directly across the road from the station.

If you can't make the two final Pizza & Whoopie Pie events, there will also be a ride on the Lobster Roll Express, on Saturday, August 19th, at 11am.

Patrons are treated to a box lunch containing a fresh Lobster Roll, chips, cookie, and a beverage. Then, they will take you on a classic train ride by Unity pond and into the woods of Waldo County Maine.

All trains depart from Unity Station, in Unity, which is located at 212 Depot Street.
