Special Memories!

"They will always hold a special place in our heart. We took the train from Flemington to our wedding venue and took our son on his first train ride for the North Pole Express. We couldn't love them more!"

Wonderfully Scenic

Really fun time for my boyfriend and I. The volunteers were really informative and shared a lot of history about the railroad. Definitely recommend for any age, it’s wonderfully scenic.

Lovely day, just long enough for young children. The conductors were very nice, particularly Jon and Jerry. Thank you.
