Family Friendly Train Ride in Historic Steam Train, Sunday Nov 12
Stanford Alumni Club of the Triangle has organized a train ride at the New Hope Valley Railway.
The train ride will begin at noon at the New Hope Valley Railway (20 min south of Raleigh). It will be a one hour ride through the countryside in open air passenger cars pulled by a historic steam locomotive. Should be a good time for fall foliage colors. Train tickets need to be purchased online in advance from the railroad's website.
Our group ride will be Sunday, Nov. 12th at 1 PM, rain or shine. We encourage people to show up early at around noon. In addition, there will be food trucks, representatives from a winery and a brewery. There is a special group rate - please use the promo code IVYPLUS for your discount. Kids under 13 who arrive by noon will be able to paint their very own "golden spike" as a special railroad history memento.
