For 58 years, the Wilmington & Western has delighted kids of all ages. And at this time of year, thousands of those children fill our train to take a magical trip with Santa through the Red Clay Valley.

A generation from now, we want those children to bring their children back for a ride with Santa and continue a treasured holiday tradition.
We need your help to make that happen!

Historic Red Clay Valley Inc., the non-profit owner and operator of the Wilmington & Western Railroad, cannot rely on income from ticket fares and membership fees alone - that's why we depend on generous donations from our friends and benefactors to build our endowment and ensure a long life for the Wilmington & Western.

If you love the sights and sounds of a first-generation diesel or century-old steam locomotive pulling trains through the Red Clay Valley while putting smiles on the faces of children, then support us this year on #GivingTuesday.
