    Hop aboard the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad Dinner Train for a first-class treat the whole family will enjoy this Sunday! You'll be seated in a restored vintage passenger coach pulled by an authentic steam locomotive as you meander through the glorious rolling hills and valleys of the Bucks county countryside, the same route filmed in the "Perils of Pauline" silent movie series. Professional photos will be taken on board if you want to bring home a souvenir!

    Ticket prices include a three-course meal, all taxes and gratuity, and a scenic, round trip train ride (about an hour) to Lahaska.

    Can’t make Dinner? No worries, the railroad offers scenic 45-minute train rides all year round (weather permitting). For more information, call 215-862-2332 or visit the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad online.

    Menu

    Menu choices for the evening include salad, garlic bread, baked ziti with meatballs, chicken parm, lasagna Bolognese and ravioli with browned sage, walnut and butter sauce, mac and cheese for the kids and dessert. Cash bar is available aboard the train.
