HOCKESSIN FLYER

Relax aboard our train as we take you on a 2½-hour round-trip ride along the entire length of our line to the town of Hockessin (a 17-mile round-trip). You'll enjoy a ½-hour layover in downtown Hockessin to browse the local shops or grab a bite to eat.

Along the way, our train will closely follow the Red Clay Creek and travel through several large rock cuts (tunnels without a roof)! We'll take you through the backyards of several neighborhoods along our tracks, and up the steepest grade on the railroad as you enter downtown Hockessin. Learn more about what you'll see along the way and the history of the route you'll travel.

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