FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND
(2018)

Celebrate Father’s Day


Enjoy an old-fashioned railroading experience on a vintage train with Dad, departing from our 1891 Witch’s Hat Train Station in the Center of New Hope, Pennsylvania.

On our Father’s Day Limited Excursion, passengers will enjoy a 45-minute, round-trip train ride through scenic Buck’s County on the “New Hope Branch” route, which was originally part of the North-East Pennsylvania Railroad, later the Reading Railroad.

Passengers will ride aboard beautifully restored vintage (early 1900’s) passenger coaches while a narrator will provide you with interesting historical facts and stories of significant cultural locations along the route.

The train will travel to Lahaska, Pennsylvania where it will then change direction and return to New Hope.

A variety of seating options are available on this special Father’s Day Weekend. For an especially memorable experience, we suggest riding aboard our First Class parlor car.
