SPRING EVENTS

As the weather gets warmer, why not bring the family for a ride on our antique train? There's a train departing every weekend, and many of those trains stop at our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove so you can enjoy a leisurely picnic lunch.



EXCURSION TRAINS

Our weekend excursion trains to Mt. Cuba, Ashland or Hockessin give you and your family a chance to slow down after a hectic week and spend some quality time together. And the best part is that you get to do it while surrounded by the natural beauty of the Red Clay Valley.
