DOG DAYS OF SUMMER

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.

This departure is powered by one of our historic first-generation diesel locomotives.
