Groups & Charters

Groups, Charters & Private Events

Do you have a group of 15 or more? Interested in booking an entire passenger car or the entire train? The Northern Central Railway team would love to work with you!

Here at the Northern Central Railway, our locomotives – the William H. Simpson No. 17 steam locomotive or the 1959 GP9 vintage diesel locomotive – will transport you and your group through the scenic countryside of southern York County. Excursions range from 1 to 4 hours and include the destinations of Glen Rock, Hanover Junction, Seven Valleys, and the Howard Tunnel. Be sure to check out our current schedule and coach accommodations.

Special pricing and packages are available for our scheduled excursions or for customized trips depending on your group size. We require at least 30 days advance notice for groups and charters. Your scheduled excursion may be opened for sale to the public unless you charter an entire coach or train. The Northern Central Team is very flexible and would be happy to discuss all options necessary.
