Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

It's a train. It's old and it doesn't have amenities, but the ride takes you back in time with the steam engine, the whistle, the tour through the countryside, and a group of men who can play with a real train and love their hobby.

We took my nephew on the train ride and it was a fun time. Great for families but also for adult afternoon of fun.

As far a scenic train rides go, they do a decent job. However, if you are considering booking a wedding, party, etc. with them...DON'T! Their communication skills are non-existent When we stopped in to inquire about having our wedding on the train, the people in the gift shop (the only one's available to talk to us) didn't have a clue. They told us that someone would get back to us to give us the information. That day never came. We phoned twice and never received a return call. It didn't take us long to cross them off of our list.
