The Train

Enjoy a ride on our historic passenger coaches.

The River

The Delaware River, which originates in New York state, runs along the Pennsylvania-New York, New Jersey-Pennsylvania, and New Jersey-Delaware borders on its way to the Atlantic ocean. It's one of the major rivers in the eastern United States, and also one of the cleanest, environmentally. Beautiful little towns, scenic wild areas, and major cities like Philadelphia dot its banks. There are many ways to enjoy and explore the Delaware River, including many annual events that span the full calendar year and a range of interests and activities.

The Train

Our train cars originally came from the Long Island Railroad dating from the 1950's and have been lovingly restored by our volunteers.

Steam locomotive #142

No. 142 was built in the Peoples Republic of China in 1989 by the TangShan Locomotive Works. Until 2000, TangShan was the last place in the world that made production steam engines. The locomotive resembles trains from an era long ago. The engine, with tender, weighs approximately 154 tons, including 13 tons of coal and 6,600 gallons of water. The engine is hand-fired, which means someone has to shovel coal into the firebox to keep the fire hot enough to make steam. No. 142 is 14'6" high, 10'8" wide, and with tender, 75'3" long

This was our first experience, and it was great!! The ride was perfect, not too long/short. My children loved it! We tried to complete the corn maze and game but were not successful lol adding the game made it fun. We brought out aunts (ages 72 and 65) and they had a grand ole time also, even in the corn maze!! The staff was more than courteous, answered the same question over and over and didn't not seem annoyed. I think this will be a start of a new tradition!! Thank you for the experience, my family can't wait to try the other excursions!

We have been to the Delaware River Railroad Excursions several times. Our boys are complete train enthusiasts. The themes are fantastic and creative! The staff is warm and welcoming! The rides are very reasonably priced and my children look forward to these trips! The Delaware River Railroad Excursions make every child who arrives dreams come true! From the moment the train arrives to the moment it drops you off! By the way the trains are very well maintained!!! Worth every penny! We would like to shake the hand of there creative & marketing department for a job well done and putting a smile on our faces and unforgettable memories!!
