PHILADELPHIA — King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls will be rolling down the Northeast Corridor this weekend after the company behind the beloved Thanksgiving side sponsored a series of dinner train runs between Philadelphia, New York and Boston.

The company has chartered three private rail cars — Caritas, Fox River Valley, and Blue Ridge Club — to host invited guests and dinner roll fans for a special meal on the rails. One of the cars has even been wrapped with images of dinner rolls and the words “Thanksgiving is better with King’s Hawaiian.” A special in-station dinner was being held in Philadelphia on Friday afternoon, before a one-way trip from there to New York City. On Saturday, there will be another in-station event at New York Penn, before a final one-way trip to Boston. A final event will be held in South Station on Sunday. A full public schedule can be found online. The consist is expected to be one Amtrak locomotive and the three private cars. The train is expected to overnight in Philadelphia, requiring a deadhead run late Friday and early Saturday.

On board, guests will be treated to a complimentary Thanksgiving meal featuring dishes like a salad with King’s Hawaiian Croutons, Thanksgiving “leftover” sliders on King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, and King’s Hawaiian Pumpkin Bread Pudding.
