Throughout 2020, we were forced to cancel many of the exciting new events we had planned, and other events were dramatically reduced to limit the threat of COVID-19 while providing a safe and enjoyable environment for our passengers. Limiting our operations meant a reduction in our ticket revenue, and a substantial amount of our annual income comes from ticket sales, so we experienced significant funding shortfalls for the 2020 season.
And when we started 2021, we were not able to hold the Hockessin Art Festival, which is a major annual fundraiser for the Wilmington & Western.
We rely heavily on the generous support of our friends and benefactors to help ensure a long life for Delaware's only operating railroad museum, and your support is needed now more than ever! Please consider making a donation to support our programs and help facilitate a return to full operation in 2022. Your assistance will enable us to continue creating lasting memories for all of our railroad fans. Please donate online today by clicking the button below or by sending a check to:
