Comments/Directions:
The Downeast Scenic Railroad will begin 2011 operations on Memorial Day weekend. We will be offering a 1hr 30 min trip from Ellsworth Maine to Ellsworth Falls and then thru the Wye at Washington Junction and a return to downtown Ellsworth. Diesel engines will pull vintage passenger cars including an open air car and a caboose. We will operate on weekends and Holidays thru Columbus Day weekend. Check our web site for updated details. At the core of the Downeast Scenic Railroad Project is the rehabilitation of the Washington Junction/Ellsworth to Green Lake section of the Calais Branch Line to create a 24-mile round- trip excursion ride. This stretch of the Calais Branch Line provides exceptional views of wetland marshes, glacial erratica including massive boulders, river and stream crossings, Little Rocky Pond and Green Lake. While working on this stretch of the line we have observed many forms of wildlife including osprey, Blue herons, Bald Eagles, moose, deer, snapping turtles, beavers...and bears, just west of Green Lake Road! Other project components include construction of a depot/museum in Ellsworth and storage/repair facility at Washington Junction.
