Break-up the workweek by riding our vintage train to the Back Burner Restaurant in Hockessin for delicious entrees and delectable desserts. The restaurant is located adjacent to our tracks so we'll take you from station to restaurant in comfort. And the best part? You don't have to do the dishes! Hors d'oeuvres are served on board, while dinner and dessert are served at the restaurant.
This event is powered by our 1929 Pennsylvania Railroad "Doodlebug" railcar.
All entrees served with salad, dinner rolls, starch, vegetable, dessert and non-alcoholic beverages. Please specify your entree choice when making your reservation.
