Skip Navigation LinksAbout The Railroad
Since 1867, the Wilmington & Western
has proudly served the communities along
the Red Clay Creek. What started as a
for-profit transportation route for freight
and passengers, has become one of Delaware's
leading tourist attractions and a popular choice
for birthday parties, weddings and family reunions.
Now in our 48th  year of tourist service, the
Wilmington & Western continues to delight children of all ages.
We invite you to ride our rails and see for yourself just how much fun
an old-fashioned train ride can be.
