NCR has curated this special Mother’s Day package for a unique and memorable experience!

Treat Mom to this special run to Glen Rock with our historic PRR GP9 Diesel Locomotive built in 1959 on a former Pennsylvania Railroad mainline that has been in operation since 1838. Your ride follows the route of the original Northern Central Railroad through the scenic Heritage Rail Trail County Park. Learn about the history of the towns and villages you pass along the way.

At our station after your ride, join Jennifer Lubman, Horticulturist and Owner of Muhly & Cedar, to make a container herb garden! We will be planting basil, rosemary, and parsley – 3 of the most widely used culinary herbs – in an 8-inch terra-cotta pot. The cost is $15 per kit and includes all materials, instruction, and recipe cards. Herb container kits must be pre-ordered by Thursday, May 6th. Pre-order by purchasing the kit with your train tickets.


Visit Muhly & Cedar at 15 North Main Street, Shrewsbury.

The coaches are pushed and pulled by our vintage diesel locomotive.

This excursion is one hour.

Tickets will be printed and available for pick up at the ticket booth on the day of the excursion.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to boarding.

Before you join us please reference our new protocols!
