SCHOOL'S OUT SPECIAL

We're saluting all school teachers, admins and staff on the completion of another school year by treating them to FREE train rides! Bring the family (or your favorite student!) and enjoy a 1½-hour round-trip ride to Yorklyn. You can take advantage of our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, where you can de-train to enjoy a picnic lunch during the ½-hour layover. If you don't want to get off the train at Mt. Cuba, you can remain onboard and travel further up the line to Yorklyn.

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