  Keepsake Pennies

This is something we didn't do because we didn't know about it.

On the Notch Railroad trip the ride ends at Fabyan Station and everyone can get out and watch the Engine being brought around to the other end of the train to hook up & bring you back to North Conway.

Well ... see those people in the picture looking down at the track while the Engine goes by? That's because they put a penny on the track before the engine came around and runs over all the pennies people have put out on the track. You then pick up your crushed & flattened penny for a souvenir.
Cool keepsake huh?
