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. Our passengers have 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 47th season of good,
old-fashioned family fun in Delaware's historic Red Clay Valley!
