Overview
More
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.

Let's start out with my only gripe, the sound system. Don't expect to hear a thing as its quiet and fuzzy. Other then that it was a very relaxing and fairly smooth ride through mostly wooded areas. The fact that you can have a beer...More
