::Historic Trains Will Run Sunday June 3rd

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

BONSAL, NC -- The New Hope Valley Railway in nearby Bonsal, NC will be operating on Sunday, June 3rd with displays of historic rail equipment as well as short rides on the company's working railroad lines.

Starting as a small lumber-hauling railroad just over a century ago, the New Hope Valley Railway has developed into a popular tourist attraction in the state.

The New Hope Valley Railroad is a non-profit organization run by volunteers to keep the historical rail lines, locomotives and rail cars operational.  The railroad line traces its lineage back to the Durham & South Carolina Railroad which started in 1906.

The North Carolina Railroad Museum will have special exhibits to show how things used to be in terms of the importance of the railroad in the state.  According to the railway, when it was first built, across the nation, one person in ten worked for a railroad in some capacity.
The New Hope Valley Railway operates the first Sunday of each month from May through November, and both Saturday and Sunday the first two weekends in December. 

Each operating day has five trains for round trips over four and a half miles (nine miles total run) of track in Chatham and Wake counties. 

Some of the railway's collections include historic engines such as the railroad's steam locomotive, Engine #17, which was built in 1941 by the Vulcan Iron Works.

The ticket office opens at 10:00am each operating day, and trains depart the depot at 11:00am, 12:15pm, 1:30pm, 2:45pm, and 4:00pm. 

Tickets are available to the public at the ticket office in Bonsal, NC which is just south of Apex, NC at a fare of $9.00 for adults and $6.00 for children. 

Exhibits at the museum include a number of cars and locomotives, a collection of historic memorabilia, and a six-hundred foot garden size model railway.
