The ways in which you can use our historic trains, station and picnic grove are almost unlimited. Here are just a few ideas to help you plan your next event:
BIRTHDAYS
FOR SMALL GROUPS...
The best way to celebrate a birthday among close friends is with a Caboose Birthday Party. We supply the red caboose and the tracks; you supply the fun! What's more, the caboose is fun for kids of all ages. Click here for more detailed information about our popular Caboose Birthday Parties.
FOR LARGE GROUPS...
For larger groups, you can charter our Greenbank Station, where your guests can enjoy catered food and birthday cake (of course), then treat them to a train ride in one of our 72-seat coaches.
LUNCHEONS
RIDE-TO-DINE...
Board our 1929 "Doodlebug" railcar at Greenbank Station and let our engineer do the driving! We'll take you to either the Hunter's Den Restaurant or the Back Burner Restaurant, both located along our tracks. You and your group will have food and drinks inside the restaurant, then return to the train for the trip back to Greenbank.
DINE ABOARD...
Have food and drinks served to you aboard the train as you ride through the lush Red Clay Valley. Your passengers will sit at tables of 2 or 4 for a buffet-style lunch. Our preferred caterer offers many different menu options from which to choose.
REHEARSAL DINNERS
AT THE STATION...
Our 3,000 sq. ft. Greenbank Station is the perfect size for rehearsal dinners. The building features central air and heat, as well as ample parking. You can make arrangements with your caterer to set up tables outside on the boarding platform to take advantage of the cool, valley breeze.
ON THE
TRAIN...
Have your food and drinks served to your guests aboard our train as you ride through the scenic Red Clay Valley. Our preferred caterer offers many different menu options from which to choose.
REUNIONS
FOR SMALL GROUPS...
Our little red caboose isn't just for birthday parties! It's also perfect for a small group celebrating a reunion. Click here for more detailed information about caboose pricing and availability.
FOR LARGER GROUPS...
Rent our Parlor Car and you can have a private party aboard any of our regularly scheduled trains. The car's open floor plan allows you to configure the car any way you choose, and you can bring food and drink aboard to serve to your guests.

WEDDINGS
AT THE GROVE...
Take advantage of our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove for a unique, creek-side wedding. Our train will take your wedding party and guests to the Grove, located along the banks of the Red Clay Creek. After the ceremony, our steam- or diesel-powered train will take everyone back to the station for an evening of dinner and dancing.
AT THE STATION...
Greenbank Station is the perfect location for small- to medium-sized weddings. Our station is conveniently located near several major highways, and ample parking is available. You can have your ceremony either inside the station, or outside on the boarding platform. After the ceremony, treat your guests to a buffet dinner aboard our train, then return to the station for dessert and dancing. Our preferred caterer can also suggest additional ways to use our station and trains for your wedding.
