EDUCATION

The Wilmington & Western is more than just a railroad - the core of our mission is to inform and educate the public about the rich history of the Red Clay Valley, and a big part of that history involves the railroad. From young to old, people are fascinated by trains and the railroad's place in history, and it is our goal to bring that history to life through our educational initiatives.
