Parking is always FREE at Edaville USA!! We have ample parking for the normal crowds that visit. The parking lot is located just outside the main entrance and is about a quarter-mile walk from the platform where you board the train. There are certain special events, such as our Pumpkins Aglow in October and the Christmas Festival of Lights in November and December, when Edaville USA gets very crowded. During these events, parking is at a premium and alternate parking areas might be utilized. The address for our parking lot is: 5 Pine St Carver, MA 02330.

Can I bring a baby stroller to Edaville USA?

Yes, baby strollers are welcome everywhere in the park except on the train ride itself. Edaville USA’s railroad is narrow gauge and, because of the smaller railroad cars, having strollers on the train could create a safety issue. Edaville USA has set up a “stroller parking” right next to the train platform. You can leave your stroller there just before boarding the train and pick it up immediately after the train ride is over.

When are the trains scheduled to leave the station?

During Edaville USA’s regularly scheduled days of operation, trains depart on an as-needed basis, beginning one hour after Edaville USA opens, with the last trip one hour before the posted closing time.

Are the train cars air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter?

The train is not air-conditioned. The summer train consists of enclosed coaches, open-air excursion cars and a caboose. The railroad is adjacent to a reservoir about half the time, and travels through forests as well, so it’s usually cool in the summer. All cars are enclosed and heated during the winter months.

Are there bathrooms on the train?

There are no bathrooms on the train. Edaville is a narrow-gauge train, and the cars are only six feet wide, so there’s no room for bathrooms. There are restrooms in the small depot building right next to the platform, and the train trip only lasts approximately 20 minutes.

Are there any steam engines at Edaville?

Yes. Edaville currently owns and maintains two steam engines. The first engine, engine #21 is a 1938 English-built 0-6-0 Hudswell Clarke that saw service at a sugar plantation in Fiji. The first phase of restoration of the “Anne Elizabeth” was completed in late 2001. The second phase began in 2011 where the engine was converted from oil fired back to coal fired. In 2013, Edaville took delivery of engine #11, a 1925 American-built 0-4-0 that was rebuilt by Boothbay RR in 2013.

How long is the average stay at Edaville USA?

Edaville was created for the young at heart so there is plenty to do for the kids. The length of time you spend is up to you. Spend as much or as little time as you like. Either before or after your train ride, let the kids have fun on all of the rides. Remember, everything is included in the regular days of operation admission fee, except food, games and gifts.
