Enjoy a summer Saturday at the Wilmington & Western and meet adorable, adoptable pups! A portion of each ticket fare will go to local "no kill" animal shelters Faithful Friends Animal Society and LaMancha Animal Rescue. Your train ride is a leisurely 1½-hour round-trip journey up the Red Clay Valley to our Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove, which includes a ½-hour layover to have a picnic - be sure to pack a picnic lunch, or grab a hotdog from our Greenbank Station to enjoy during the ride.
Dogs like Chase, Princess and Hannah (pictured in our banner graphic above) are waiting at either LaMancha Animal Rescue or Faithful Friends Animal Society to find their forever home.
This departure is powered by one of our historic first-generation diesel locomotives.
