Autism Friendly Train


Join us on an Autism Friendly Train along our beautiful and scenic line!

Colebrookdale Railroad Preservation Trust is proud to team up with autism experts at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Center for Autism Research (CAR) on October 6th, 2018 for a special autism awareness & education event complete with a sensory-friendly train ride. CAR experts & staff will be available beforehand to provide resources, information, and sensory-friendly activities for guests and their families. Colebrookdale is also partnering with the Philadelphia Eagles, LEGOLAND and the Crayola Experience.  Additional local partners include Unending Promise, Autism Village, and The A Team of Spring Ford.

Please come early (10 AM) and allow yourself to become familiar with the train yard, the ticket building, the boarding platform, the many different train cars and the uniformed staff and volunteers who will be serving you during your excursion on the Secret Valley Line.

Because of the variety of dietary concerns, a special exception has been made and we encourage you to bring your own snacks. We will, however, have our a la carte menu available.

We look forward to you joining us for this excursion, seating is limited, get your tickets now!
