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.

It is just a short ride from New Hope to Ivyland and back. It is expensive and really kind of a waste of time unless you have really young children.More

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