We love the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad.  What kid doesn't love a train ride?  Kids are excited to be on the train and parents relax as you travel through the rolling hills and valleys of historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and experience first hand the sights, sounds and romance of the Golden Era of Steam Railroading.  

Kids will love the journey into history, learning what rail travel was like for your parents, grand parents and great-grand parents.

Make a day of it and hit the Bucks County Children's Museum next door. You don't even have to move the car!

COOL FACTS about The New Hope Ivyland Railroad

  1. Passengers ride on restored 1920s vintage passenger coaches, antique bar car, the authentic steam locomotive and the historic diesel locomotives.
  2. The train will take you along the same historic route that was filmed in the 1914 movie series Perils of Pauline. Pretty cool right? Yea, we didn't see it either, here is a trailer. 
  3. The kids won't think this is interesting, but for us older folk here is a little trivia. In 2008 The Perils of Pauline was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry, as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."  Wikipedia
  4. Passengers purchase your tickets in the original Witch's Hat New Hope Train Station, which was once the location of the railroad telegraph operator who sent and received all messages for the town of New Hope, PA. This building has been in operation since 1891.
