Cape Cod Central Railroad

The Cape Cod Central Railroad is one of the most scenic journeys in the United States, running along the coastline of Cape Cod from the centre of Sandwich into downtown Hyannis. Leaving Sandwich, the Cape Cod Central Railroad passes the Old Sandwich Harbor creek and salt marsh and the lobsterman houses. The train then continues towards Barnstable, passing the 'Kettle Hole' ponds left by receding glaciers and cranberry bogs, an important agricultural crop on Cape Cod, which are a spectacular deep red colour in Autumn.

The Cape Cod Central Railroad travels through salt marshes: crucial wildlife habitats and rich producers of food for many species of birds and fish. Stone 'Cow Tunnels' - one cow high and one cow wide - run underneath the tracks at this point as the marshes were once used for grazing. After a brief stop in Barnstable Village, a popular sport fishing port, the train continues inland to Hyannis, the commercial centre of Cape Cod and the final destination for the journey on the Cape Cod Central Railroad.
