While there are many different excursions offered along this scenic train line from winery trains to a polar express ride in the winter, the railroad transforms into a fall lover's dream during the month of October known as The Great Pumpkin Train.

Fun for all ages, this excursion will take you on a beautiful ride along the river. You'll be surrounded by gorgeous trees, fall foliage, and beautiful countryside. The train will then make a stop at the pumpkin patch where you'll get to enjoy a corn maze, picnic area, and tons of scenic beauty along the site of the oldest lime kiln in the state of New Jersey. Each rider will leave with their own complimentary pumpkin.
