New Hope Valley Railway offers Friday train ride this month

Posted September 5, 2012

New Hope Valley Railway in southwest Wake County usually offers rides on its historic steam and diesel engines on the first Sunday of the month.

But the railway is offering a special run on a Friday this month to school groups, retirement communities and families who just want to hop on. The hour-long ride on the open-air train is 10 a.m., Sept. 21.

Mike MacLean, the railway's president, said they've offered these so called Group Rides for a few years now. Next year, the railway plans to rename them the Friday Train or something like that so people know they don't actually have to be part of a group to ride.

Tickets are on sale now. They are $10 for adults and $7 for kids ages 2 to 12. Future Group Rides are set for Friday, Oct. 19 and Friday, Nov. 16.
