 The New Hope Valley Railway (NHVR) is the Triangle’s Train. Children, parents, grandparents and others can enjoy a day together riding a real train behind one of our hard working locomotives, including our historic steam engine or one of our historic diesel engines. Learn about railroad history, watch the outdoor G-Scale garden railroad, visit the outdoor North Carolina Railroad Museum, or view equipment in the railroad yard. Don’t forget to stop at the gift shop for a souvenir.

The public is invited to visit this unique location in historic Bonsal, North Carolina, located off of U.S. Highway 1, just 30 minutes southwest of downtown Raleigh.

Trains generally operate one Sunday each month beginning in April through the end of the year. There are also special Halloween and Santa trains for the holidays. The first train departs the depot at 11 a.m. and the last at 4 p.m. You can choose to ride in passenger cars pulled by either a diesel locomotive or a steam engine.
