You are cordially invited to join us for “A TALENT for MURDER” as the Conway Scenic Railroad presents the Murder Mystery Dinner Train 2018.

It’s the finals of New England’s prestigious “America’s Got The Goods” show. It’s a glamorous affair with plenty of talent on display for your enjoyment. The best of the best vie for the $1 million cash prize plus the chance to compete for the top prize of their own headline show at the national finals in Vegas! Everybody expects the Diva to win but nobody is playing by the rules and somebody has a hidden talent… murder. The final curtain is just that for one of our contestants and it will be your job to figure out who-dunnit!

Passengers can participate as much or as little as they like in the tongue in cheek humor and zany antics that will keep everyone on their toes as they work the clues to determine the killer on board.
