NEW FOR 2019!

The Northern Central Railway cordially invites you to a very special maiden voyage to Seven Valleys. Celebrate in a memorable and unique way on board our beautiful No. 17 through the countryside of York County with your family to Seven Valleys to have a  picnic lunch.  Riders are encouraged to bring their own lunch basket and blanket for an old fashion picnic! Guests will also be able to enjoy large outdoor games like Bowling, Checkers, Connect, Kerplunk, Bean Bag Toss, Corn Hole and Lawn Pong along with a magical performance by Marc Charisse!

Guests are encouraged to explore Seven Valleys with the option to stop at Four Springs Winery for a wine tasting!

Outside your window is the beautiful York County and the Heritage Rail Trail, while you enjoy this excursion to Seven Valleys. We will take you back in time to the 1860s when President Lincoln rode these tracks on his way to Gettysburg to deliver his now-famous Gettysburg Address. ALL ABOARD!

The cars are pulled and pushed by the Steam locomotive.

The total excursion time is three hours.

Tickets will be available to be picked up at the ticket booth in the back of the gift shop on the day of the trip.
