Brew 'n' Choo


Ride a real train on Sat., June 29, during New Hope Valley Railway's (NHVR) third weekend excursion of its 2019 season.

In addition to a train ride, our family-friendly event will have food available for purchase from The Spiedie Turtle and adults ages 21+ can enjoy craft beer from White Street Brewing. Food and drink are not included in train ticket price.

Free short tours of the North Carolina Railway Museum are planned to begin 45 minutes before each train departure time and the Garden Railroad (G Scale) will also be operating.

All Brew 'n' Choo events are family-friendly fundraisers that benefit projects at the railway. Our June 29 Brew 'n' Choo benefits our NHVR Restroom building project.

Trains depart at 2, 3, 4 and 5pm. Visit to purchase tickets.

Train excursions typically run about an hour with trains departing from NHVR's rail yard in Bonsal and traveling eight miles round trip. NHVR's rail yard is located 30 minutes from Raleigh off Old U.S. 1 South on the Wake-Chatham county line.
