We had an awesome experience with our 3 year old grandson! Santa was great and we really enjoyed the singing. We felt it was a bit expensive and probably won't do it again for another few years.More

Had to have a dose of railroad this weekend. Chose this railroad due to its close proximity to our hometown. The ride was great and enjoyable.

We went on the traditional train tour into the PA countryside from New Hope. It had snowed the day before and it was awesome to see the snow covered countryside!

Nice little old fashioned railroad you can ride for about 8 miles and 15 minutes each way. It's fun, but it's very expensive for how short a trip it is. 22 bucks per adult seems high to me. It's a nice ride, but it ends...More
