A trip on the Wilmington & Western
will take you back to a time when the
steam locomotive ruled the rails. You'll
travel in antique passenger coaches pulled
by one of our coal-burning steam locomotives
or an early-generation diesel locomotive. Some
trains feature our historic self-propelled Pennsyl-
vania Railroad "Doodlebug" railcar, where you can
relax in plush seats surrounded by a polished wood interior.
Regardless of how you travel, you and your family will experience
early 20th Century railroading at its best.
