Welcome to triangletrain.com, website for the New Hope Valley Railway / North Carolina Railway Museum.

The second Brew ‘N’ Choo will be Saturday May 28, 2022, featuring craft beer from TBD and COCKADOODLEMOO food truck. This is a great event for families, couples and railfans to enjoy the train and experience some local brew as well as food truck fare! The beer and food you purchase directly from the vendors may be enjoyed on your train ride or on the picnic tables and seating in the rail yard.

Buy tickets here-you’ll click through to our event calendar. Go to Saturday May 28th and click on the train departure time you’d like to purchase. Ticket prices range from $9-$12 per person. Food and beer (for guests 21-years-of-age and older) are not included in the ticket price and are sold separately in our rail yard.

Masks No Longer Required
Masks are no longer required by Federal mandate on trains and will no longer be required to be worn by our visitors or staff on our trains or in the rail yard. We respect those who choose to wear a mask and know for some masks are necessary. The good news is you now have a choice.

Calendar and Tickets:
To access the 2022 schedule, pricing, and ticket purchasing please click on the Buy Tickets button.  You may also purchase tickets at the Ticket Office on ride days, assuming the ride you want still has seats available.  We prefer credit cards at the ticket office, but, can accept cash if necessary.

Halloween / Santa Trains:
All ride days are posted except for our Halloween and Santa Trains which will go on sale in July 2022.

Sold Out Tickets:
When purchasing tickets on Event Calendar, if a seat type, such as the Family Caboose, is not visible on our Calendar page for a particular ride, it is sold out. Our Family Caboose sells out quickly, so if you do not see it on the calendar, it is most likely sold out. One way to check is to mouse over the event in the calendar and view the available ticket price range.  If the max ticket price is less than $125, the Family Caboose seat type is sold out for that ride. If the ride you wish to purchase will not permit you to purchase the total number of tickets you need, that means the seats are sold out and not available. If that happens, please select another ride time.

Birthday Caboose:
The Birthday Caboose has not yet reopened for birthday parties. Once it is open again we will post here and on social media.

Be sure to visit the attractions we have on site, such as our 6 track G-Scale Model Railroad, Gift Shop, Post Office Car and Vintage Caboose.  You can also view projects in progress such as the Federal 15-year inspection for the #17 Steam Locomotive and our Goldston Depot restoration (from the outside for now). These are all free of charge and can be viewed on any ride day.
