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.

A great way to experience train travel in the early to mid 20th century. The 45 minute ride through the beautiful Bucks County countryside gives you an idea of how people used to travel. Fun experience with experienced staff.
