CIVIL WAR SKIRMISH WEEKEND

Travel with troops to the site of a skirmish between Union and Confederate forces. You'll see men and women dressed in authentic period costumes using weapons of that time. This train operates to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, and passengers will enjoy a ½-hour layover at the Picnic Grove during the approximately 2-hour round-trip.

This event is powered by one of our antique steam locomotives.
