Our Train Master reported that the trains will not operate in the excessive heat, citing electrical, track and rolling stock failures.

Garden Railway trains are not running Saturday, September 8th and Sunday, September 9th due to inclement weather.

Weather conditions may limit garden access to certain features even if the garden is open – please check the web site or call (215) 247-5777 for updates before visiting.
