Birthday Caboose

Celebrate the rail fan in your life by giving them a party at the Triangle’s Train! Our vintage 1913 caboose is available for rent as a party room for birthdays and other events. Tables and chairs are provided, so all you need do is bring the party favors, decorations, refreshments and guest of honor!

The caboose rents for $125 for two hours. Parties may be booked for 10 a.m. until Noon; or 12:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. If you would like the caboose from 10:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., you can book both rental periods for $250. The caboose is not part of the regular train and does not move during parties. However, if your party is scheduled on one of our Ride Days, you may purchase tickets online and in advance for your group at regular ticket prices. Caboose rentals are timed to coincide with convenient train departures after the rental period.

Online booking of the birthday caboose has not begun for the 2017 season. Please check back soon or email Please be patient–you will get a response, but we are an all-volunteer railroad and can’t respond immediately.

If your birthday party is scheduled on a ride day, Bruster’s Real Ice Cream of Apex will be at New Hope Valley Railway serving ice cream. Contact them at (919) 234-0026 about requesting a special ice cream flavor.
