Mudballs for Mom on the Colebrookdale Railroad

The Open Car on the Colebrookdale Railroad's Secret Valley line is an ideal place to enjoy this Saturday's "Mudball Express."

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Colebrookdale Railroad.

This Saturday, April 18, the Colebrookdale Railroad will host the first ever “Mudball Express.”
The Mudball Express is all about the flowers, and the canopy, which
will be set up in case of inclement weather.

The first train of its kind east of the Mississippi, the Mudball Express will allow children of all ages to sling mudballs — yes, real mudballs — from the train. 

 The mudballs plant wildflower seeds along the route.

“The Mudball express is a clever idea aimed at sowing native wildflowers along the historic Colebrookdale railroad line. Planting native wildflowers is more sustainable and supports a variety of important species in our ecosystem,” said Kimberly J. Murphy, CFRE President, Berks County Conservancy. 

Wildflowers will bloom in time for the railroad’s Mother’s Day High Tea Trains.

The railroad’s open car will be covered in the chance of rain. 

Local foods available in cafe car and old fashioned sodas available in open car a la carte.

Trains leave from Third and Washington Streets, Boyertown, 1:30 and 3:30 pm. 

Tickets available at or at the railroad, 610-367-0200.
