Independence Limited

All Aboard the Independence Limited!

Celebrate Independence Day with a train ride!

On July 4, starting at 3pm, Maine Narrow Gauge trains will operate as a shuttle service between downtown Portland and the Eastern Promenade Park, where the city’s July 4 fireworks will be launched from. The last train is expected to leave around 8:30pm.

Explore downtown and take advantage of numerous convenient parking lots and garages nearby. Hop aboard the narrow gauge train for direct access to the city’s fireworks.

Note: due to the Independence Day celebrations, Maine Narrow Gauge’s narrated scenic trains will not run on July 4. Enjoy this special, patriotic train service as an enjoyable alternative!
