HEALTH ADVISORY & TRAIN EXCURSION UPDATE
UPDATED MAY 9, 2020
Visitors, Riders & Community Members:
The health and safety of the Wilmington & Western Railroad’s patrons, volunteers and staff continues to be our highest priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we continue to receive new information in regard to COVID-19 and its impact in our community, I wanted to provide you with an update about our upcoming train events.
Under the recommendations of Governor Carney and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the Wilmington & Western Railroad is cancelling all of our train excursions and private charters until further notice.
If you have purchased tickets for any of the affected excursions, here are a few ticket options for you to consider:
Receive a full refund for your ticket(s);
Receive a credit for another train ride later in the season;
In lieu of a refund or credit, please consider donating the cost of your ticket(s) to the Railroad because we will not be able to reschedule most of these lost train excursions – approximately 80% of our total income for the year is generated through ticket purchases. A contribution will help us continue to offer culturally enriching programs as we move forward this season and beyond.
Please give us a call at 302.998.1930 or email us at carole(at)wwrr.com to let us know how you would like to proceed.
In the meantime, we will continue to keep you up-to-date in regard to our excursions/operations and we look forward to seeing you back on our trains real soon.
As always, we encourage everyone to follow preventative guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention in order to promote a healthy and vibrant community.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
David M. Keller
Wilmington & Western Railroad
