FATHER'S DAY SPECIAL

Dads love trains, so why not treat him to a ride aboard our train on Father's Day? You and Dad will take a leisurely 1½-hour round-trip train ride to our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, so pack a picnic lunch to enjoy with Dad. Plus, he'll get to ride for half-fare!

This event is powered by one of our historic first-generation diesel locomotives.
