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.
Engine 5843 is a diesel that has seen better days and is sidelined, at least for now.
