PHILLIPS — Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad are to resume operations for the 2021 season.

Operations are to commence on Saturday, July 3, and run through the end of the foliage season in mid-October.

Its operating schedule is available online at, but may be subject to change because of the availability of equipment and train crews.

The special events list remains a work in progress, but the annual Civil War re-enactment is confirmed for Saturday, July 31. Check back throughout the season as some events may be added.

Train fares are $6 per adult or those 13 and older, $2 for children younger than 13, and free for children younger than 6. Members can ride the train as many times as they care to, but donations are appreciated.

The railroad does not offer advanced ticket sales, but trains are seldom filled to capacity, with the exception of some of its special events.
