Just when you thought the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer was all about kid-friendly events like Thomas the Tank rides and the Polar Express, think again! The museum is bringing the romance for Valentine’s Day too! What an awesome idea for a dinner out with your sweetheart, chugging along the tracks. The N.C. Transportation Museum is offering romantic dinner rides on Feb. 12 and 13. Here’s the lowdown on . All aboard!!! – Smarty Carroll
Join us for an evening of elegance and romance at the N.C. Transportation Museum. We are excited to welcome back our annual Wine & Dine on the Rails event in 2022! This special event features a cocktail hour inside the museum followed by a leisurely train ride around our 60-acre historic site, and a three-course meal served aboard the train.
There are 2-top or 4-top tables available for purchase. Couples can enjoy their own table at our 2-top settings. Our 4-top tables are ideal for those who want to bring friends or schedule a double-date night! All seats at a table must be purchased, whether they are occupied or not. Tables cannot be moved, nor can you add additional seating. Parties larger than the allowed number of seated passengers will need to purchase additional tables to accommodate other members of the party. Seating is limited, so don’t miss out!
Each individual passenger will receive four drink tickets to be redeemed from our selection of wine and beer in either the cocktail area or on the train. Additional drinks can also be purchased for an additional cost.
Review the menu options for this romantic evening with your valentine or galentine.
