Maine - Downeast Scenic Railroad

Ellsworth, ME - Join us on the Downeast Scenic Railroad, the first tourist-passenger rail to grace the historic Calais Branch Line in decades, on an excursion ride this season!

The Downeast Scenic Railroad offers two trips per day Saturdays and Sundays through the season. Our round-trip tour travels from Ellsworth, Maine, on the historic Calais Branch Line to Ellsworth Falls and then to Washington Junction and back to Ellsworth. The ten-mile trip takes approximately 90 minutes.

In July of 2012 we began operating through the newly rebuilt wye at our Washington Junction rail yard. The wye was built by the Maine Central in 1931 when they discontinued service to McNeil Point on the old Maine Shore Line tracks. Trains like the Bar Harbor Express then ended their run in Ellsworth. The Maine Central used the wye to turn engines and coaches around so they could be ready to leave Ellsworth westbound. Come ride the Downeast Scenic Railroad now and travel over this historic section of track. All of our Saturday and Sunday departures now use the wye at Washington Junction to reverse directions.
