Railway Day for MDA

Join us for an afternoon train ride, food trucks, a beer garden and more as we support the Muscular Dystrophy Association and all they do to help those with muscle-debilitating diseases. ALL PROCEEDS FROM TICKET SALES, TRAIN SPONSORSHIPS AND CAB RIDES WILL GO TO MDA!

You'll travel through the scenic Red Clay Valley aboard our vintage train on a 1½-hour round-trip ride to our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, where you'll have a ½-hour to enjoy a picnic lunch or simply admire the natural beauty of the Red Clay Creek. Or, you can remain aboard the train and we'll take you farther up the line to the towns of Ashland and Yorklyn. There will also be fun, family activities at the station.

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

We are still finalizing the list of trucks and activities which will be participating. Please check back closer to the event.
