Overview

The New Hope & Ivyland Railroad is nestled 37 miles outside of Philadelphia in Bucks County’s premiere destination; New Hope, Pennsylvania. A Delaware river town chock-full of niche shops and resturants, a fitting locale for a day or night out with friends & family. We provide a glimpse into travel of a bygone era on historic trains traveling over tracks that were laid in 1891 by the North-East Pennsylvania Railroad.

If your not planning on taking a train ride, don't bother. The building is off the beaten path and not worth the short walk to see. The store is small. Maybe worth a quick picture to say you've seen it, but not impressed.

There is no steam engine. The railroad is leasing equipment from the Pennsylvania Northeastern Railroad. The only railroad I know that will come close to the polar express look of the train is the Strasburg Railroad.

You can buy at the station but I would suggest checking Groupons for advance purchase discounts.
