Hershey Railway Review

The sky-blue station for the Hershey Railway is a picturesque little depot. Once the property of Pennsylvania-based chocolate barons, the railway was built to haul sugarcane; it eventually added passenger service. Now the quaint electric engine pulls two passenger cars with wooden benches into this station, which is in the Reparto Versailles, a district settled by French-Haitian refugees during the 19th century. The ride takes about three to four hours.
