All aboard for family fun & memories!
On October 19, 1872, the Wilmington & Western Railroad opened for service, and went to work carrying goods and passengers between the small towns and mills that lined the scenic Red Clay Creek.
In the early 1960s, we became one of the first "heritage railroads" in the United States, and since 1966, the modern-day Wilmington & Western has carried hundreds of thousands of kids (both young and old) along that same scenic route. 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)!
Come and join us for good, old-fashioned family fun in Delaware's historic Red Clay Valley.
