AUTUMN LEAF SPECIAL
TO MT. CUBA

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2021
12:30 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 1½-hour round-trip to Mt. Cuba, you'll enjoy a ½-hour layover at our secluded picnic grove along the banks of the Red Clay Creek. You can pack a picnic lunch (or purchase food and drinks at Greenbank Station) to enjoy during the stop. If you don't want to get off at Mt. Cuba, you can remain on the train and we'll take you further up the line to view even more Autumn colors.

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