RIDE THE TRAIN

What started in 1867 as a for-profit transportation route for freight and passengers, has become one of Delaware's leading tourist attractions. Our passengers return again and again to be delighted by our friendly train crew, our historic trains and the beautiful scenery along our route. Now in our 52nd year of tourist service, the Wilmington & Western continues to delight children of all ages. We invite you to ride our rails and see for yourself just how much fun an old-fashioned train ride can be.
