A tour of Bucks County
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.
Here are some miscellaneous shots of engines, cars and parts in the yard as of July 2018. Some have definitely seen better days.
I came across Engine 7087 at night in the New Hope Station in September 2016.
The Buckingham Valley Station was a stop on the New Hope Railroad Line. It is no longer an active station.
Just across from the Wycombe Publik House, there are some rustic old buildings that are still in use by Histand’s Supply Company.

The Wycombe Station was a stop on the New Hope Line. This photo was taken prior to 2007. The Station is restored now. It might be a private residence.
