The route of the original Wilmington & Western was laid out in the early 1870s, and soon after, men and machines went to work moving goods and passengers along the Red Clay Valley.
Since 1966, the modern-day Wilmington & Western has moved hundreds of thousands of kids (both young and old) along this same route. We have become one of the East Coast's premier scenic tourist railroads, and our passengers come for romantic evenings, holiday celebrations, or a relaxing afternoon train ride
with family and friends.
We have a seat waiting for you, and from that seat, you'll see the past as never
before. History will come alive, senses will be excited, and a forgotten era
will be re-lived (and we think you'll have a little fun along the way)!
So get on the right track and join us for our 50th season of good,
old-fashioned family fun in Delaware's historic Red Clay Valley!
