Independence Limited


Celebrate Independence Day with a waterfront train ride along Casco Bay. The museum will be open for the holiday with trains on the hour from 10am-3pm. The train will be departing from Ocean Gateway for shuttle rides to the Independence Day festival on the Eastern Promenade, with a drop-off at Cutter Street. Trains will depart every half hour, times are 5:30-8:00pm. Following the fireworks, our train will return wristband-ticket passengers back to the Ocean Gateway platform.


Passengers must have purchased wristband-tickets to make the return trip. Your wristband-ticket does not entitle you or your party to any additional services at the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad museum or during the Stars & Stripes Spectacular.
