CHILDREN'S DAYS ON THE WILMINGTON & WESTERN

Pack a picnic lunch and bring the kids for a leisurely 1½-hour round-trip train ride up the Red Clay Valley to our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, where you'll enjoy a ½-hour layover to have a picnic or simply admire the natural surroundings. One child rides FREE with each accompanying full-priced adult ticket.

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