AUTUMN LEAF SPECIAL
TO HOCKESSIN

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2021
2:30 PM


Surround yourself with the beauty and splendor of Autumn during the most colorful time of the year. The wooded hills of northern Delaware come alive with the vibrant colors of Autumn, and the best place to see them is aboard our historic train. Be sure to bring your camera and behold the best that the Red Clay Valley has to offer.

On our 2½-hour round-trip to Hockessin, you'll travel the entire length of the railroad (a 17-mile round-trip) to the town of Hockessin. You'll spend a ½-hour layover in Hockessin, where you can browse the local shops or purchase food for the return trip from one of several eateries near the tracks.

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