Railway Day for MDA

Join us for an afternoon train ride, food truck and more as we support the Muscular Dystrophy Association and all they do to help those with muscle-debilitating diseases. ALL PROCEEDS FROM TICKET SALES, TRAIN SPONSORSHIPS AND CAB RIDES WILL GO TO MDA!

You'll travel through the scenic Red Clay Valley aboard our vintage train on a 1½-hour round-trip ride through the towns of Mt. Cuba, Ashland and Yorklyn. There will also be fun, family activities at the station. This train does not stop at the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove.

This departure is powered by one of our historic first-generation diesel locomotives.
