The New Hope Railroad allows an allotted time for the party host to decorate the Vintage Railcar before the party starts. Please coordinate with the event organizer, for the best-suited time frame to decorate.
When the party host arrives, please check in with the gift shop attendant. The attendant will direct you to the boarding area.
We urge you to inform your guests to please arrive no later than 20-30 minutes prior to the departure time/event start time. This allows time for guests to park and use the restrooms before boarding. Due to an intense operating schedule, New Hope Railroad cannot hold the train departure, and longer than five minutes, for any guests arriving late.
Parking is conveniently located onsite at the railroad.
Parking is based upon availability and can not be guaranteed.
The parking lot will close when capacity is reached. There is limited handicap parking available.
It is recommended to arrive a half-hour before your scheduled excursion.
The parking lot is managed and operated by EZ PARK 24. Please visit the ezpark24.com website for current rates and more information.
