The New Hope Railroad
If you are looking for something new to do, the New Hope Railroad runs excursions from the historic station in New Hope. Their trains include Vintage diesel and steam engines and coaches. For most of the year the trains are pulled by the diesels. However, they have been running steam excursions such as their Santa’s Steam Spectacular.
Their regular excursions travel through the rural countryside to the Lahaska Station and then back to New Hope. Adult tickets range from about $23 for coach to about $32 for the First Class Parlor car. Special excursions cost significantly more. See the New Hope Railroad Site for schedules and tickets.
The railroad has a collection of engines and cars. Some of the engines in various stages of restoration in the yard at the New Hope station are visible from the adjacent parking lot. The Wycombe station is no longer used as a station but was once a stop on the line.
