When New Hope Valley Railroad came to Communicopia in 2012 for public relations marketing assistance, they had no social media presence and a basic website. Today, we’ve branded them as the Triangle’s Train and grown their followers to the tens of thousands. We created Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts for Triangle’s Train and created and website where visitors can learn more and buy tickets online. We’ve created a brochure that is distributed through state Visitor’s Centers and at the State Fair. We’ve written and placed articles that make visitors aware of the tourist railroad near and far.
Families are making memories through the moments they spend in the rail yard and riding on the only real train locomotive in the greater Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. Best of all, it’s 100 percent operated by volunteer train enthusiasts who put profits back into making those memories.
