Once upon a time, railroad service ran all the way to Provincetown, but over the past seventeen years, the service in these parts has been exclusively provided by this fine excursion railroad which has continued to offer a range of wonderful outings for rail fans and those seeking to experience the Cape in an entirely different fashion than from an automobile or other form of transit. Currently, the railroad runs excursions trains from May to October and visitors can pick from their exciting coastal excursion train ride, their celebrated dinner train, and the ever popular Polar Express Train Ride , which takes place in November and December.
The rides are all delightful as passengers will depart from Hyannis and travel through West Barnstable and Sandwich down to the Cape Cod Canal. Their equipment roster includes cranberry-colored what else?
I would be remiss if I did not recommend the dinner train which offers a three hour ride, complete with beautiful music and soft candlelight. Want to create an itinerary from this post? Many of the property developers also doubled as railroad investors.

It was only when the Nantucket Railroad was dismantled in the spring of , and its scrap metal drafted to support Allied Forces in France during World War I, that islanders seemed to have a change of heart about their rail line. This was for it to have been given to, set up for, and used by the Central Powers. It would have contributed substantially to their humiliating defeat.
here I suspect that there might have been some romance attached to the railroad by , but not enough for anyone to try and keep it going. For three ownership groups, that was always the challenge—to keep the railroad going.
