Take a leisurely 1½-hour round-trip ride up the Red Clay Valley to our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, where you'll enjoy a ½-hour layover to have a picnic or simply admire the natural surroundings. If you don't want to de-train at the picnic grove, you can stay aboard and our train will take you another two miles to the town of Ashland. Our Mt. Cuba Meteor is a relaxing way to spend a weekend afternoon with family or friends.
This event is powered by either our historic first-generation diesel locomotive, by our 1929 Pennsylvania Railroad Doodlebug railcar, or by one of our antique steam locomotives.
