HOCKESSIN MERCHANT EXPRESS

Sit back, relax, and let our friendly train crew take you to and from downtown Hockessin, where you'll enjoy a 2-hour layover to browse the local shops and eateries throughout town. A light continental breakfast will be served on the trip to Hockessin, and will include hot and cold beverages, fresh fruit and assorted baked goods.

We are excited to be partnering with the Hockessin Business Association to bring you this new event for 2019!

This event is powered by one of our historic first-generation diesel locomotives, or by one of our antique steam locomotives.
