MT. CUBA METEOR

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 04, 2021
2:30 PM


Take a leisurely 1½-hour round-trip ride up the Red Clay Valley to our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, which includes a ½-hour layover to have a picnic or simply admire the natural surroundings. Our Mt. Cuba Meteor excursion is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon outside with family or friends.

If you don't want to get off the train at Mt. Cuba, you can remain onboard and travel further up the line through the communities of Ashland and Yorklyn. On the return trip, we'll make a brief stop at Mt. Cuba to pick up the picnic passengers.

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