Holidays on the Wilmington & Western
AUTUMN LEAF SPECIAL - TOYS FOR TOTS DAY

Surround yourself with the beauty and splendor of Autumn during the most colorful time of the year. Choose from either a 1½-hour round-trip to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove or a 2½-hour round-trip to Hockessin. Bring your camera and behold the best that the Red Clay Valley has to offer.

Members of the North American Rail Car Operators Association (NARCOA) will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Toys collected locally will be distributed locally to children who need some cheer this holiday season. NARCOA members will also have some of their unique motorcars (also known as "speeders") on display at Greenbank Station. Please note that we cannot offer free or discounted train tickets in return for your Toys for Tots donation. Motorcar rides will not be offered.

On behalf of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and NARCOA, we thank you for your generous Toys for Tots donation!

MT. CUBA PICNIC GROVE 1½-hour round-trip
On our trip to Mt. Cuba, you'll enjoy a ½-hour layover at our secluded picnic grove along the banks of the Red Clay Creek. You can pack a picnic lunch (or purchase food and drinks at Greenbank Station) to enjoy during the stop.

HOCKESSIN 2½-hour round-trip
On our trip to Hockessin, you'll travel the entire length of the railroad (a 17-mile round-trip) to the town of Hockessin. You'll spend a ½-hour layover in Hockessin, where you can browse the local shops or purchase food for the return trip from one of several eateries near the tracks.

This event is powered by one of our historic diesel locomotives.
