On Monday, April 8, 2019, Amtrak notified us that our 2019 Spring trips and events aboard Dover Harbor may be affected by station construction. We are still operating trips and events.  We will post notices of any changes.

The construction is expected to last for at least two years. Some of our trips that had been scheduled before Amtrak published notice of the construction issue were affected.

While Amtrak's new policies may affect our traditional private rail car trip planning from Washington, D.C., trips continue to be scheduled around Amtrak's construction schedule. Please know that we will continue DCNRHS' longstanding tradition of offering rail oriented trips.  Work continues to make opportunities available to enjoy the comfort and elegance of Pullman travel on Dover Harbor.  Please watch our web site (, and future editions of The Timetable and Trip News year for announcements about these opportunities.

Please see our current up coming trips page for our current offerings.
