Wine & Dine on the Rails at the NC Transportation Museum: 2024

For the seventh year, the North Carolina Transportation Museum, located in Spencer, North Carolina, is hosting a special event for fans of train travel and fine dining. The Wine & Dine on the Rails event offers passengers an evening of fine-dining, cocktails, and selection of beers and wines all while riding the rails.

The Wine & Dine on the Rails event is operated by the N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation, a non-profit organization, which supports the museum’s activities and events they host throughout the year. Marcus Neubacher, Director of Administration for the N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation notes,

An event like this expands museum’s audience by bringing guests who are looking for a unique experience and may have never visited before. Many guests who visit for this elegant evening event will later return to see what the museum has to offer during other times of the year.”
