On Saturday, June 30, New Hope Valley Railway (NHVR) volunteers will substitute “All Aboard” with “Aloha” during the railway’s Brew ‘n’ Choo Luau. Ride the train in a Hawaiian setting complete with craft beer, barbecue and music.
The event will last from 1-6 p.m. with trains departing at 2, 3, 4 & 5 p.m. Ticket costs range from $10-$12.
Families and friends can create a lasting memory of their visit to the rail yard by taking a photo in front of the tropical beach backdrop or with a patriotic icon near the newly painted No. 3 locomotive.
NHVR’s food vendor, Catering on Demand, will serve Hawaiian roasted barbecue with chicken long rice or aloha sweet potatoes. Hand dipped premium ice creams and non-alcoholic piña colada and strawberry smoothies will also be available for purchase.
Proceeds from the June 30 Luau fundraiser event will go toward the restoration of NHVR’s Steam Engine #17, which is currently undergoing its mandated, 15-year, Federal Railroad Administration inspection.
During the Luau, NHVR volunteers will discuss the current status of the steam engine and what work must still be completed before it can once again pull passengers on NHVR’s track.
