Description

Ellis D. Atwood gave this historic amusement park its name, his initials (E.D.A). He started this railroad by purchasing most of the surviving equipment from Maine’s once expansive network of two-foot gauge rail’s and had them trucked south to Carver, Massachusetts. This was the making of Edaville Railroad.

In Maine, these two-foot gauge rails covered several sections of the state starting in the... late 1800’s. These short line railroads fell prey to the depression and competition from automobiles. With the railroads shutting down, Ellis D. Atwood began purchasing the remaining rails in 1946 and 1947 and had it trucked to cranberry bogs of Carver, Mass.

Atwood had a plan, he built a railroad 5 ½ miles long around his 1,800 acre plantation of cranberries. He used the trains to service his bogs as well as hauling paying customers through the plantation for sightseeing. This operation evolved into a “Family Fun Park”; with an emphasis on carnival type rides, bright lights and extravagant Christmas displays. Edaville Railroad became a local institution, and drew visitors from far and wide.

General Information

During the summer of 2013, the park began a three year major renovation project. Starting with the parking lot and front of the park, several tons of dirt were moved about to make way for a larger parking lot, moving of track and construction of new buildings. The parking lot was increased by twice the size it was before allowing a better flow of traffic and availability of parking spots. Plans fo...r a sidewalk, trees and lighting will be installed along the roadway. The track was moved in order to accommodate more parking. The front entrance way was moved in order to be more centered with the parking lot. The carousel was moved to the front of the park and the boarding tent was moved to it's existing location to provide additional cover for customers to eat and enjoy live entertainment. A new balloon ride was installed next to Jumbo. Finally, we received over 20 animatronic dinosaurs which will be installed this fall.
