ALL ABOARD FOR OUR 48TH SEASON!
The route of the original Wilmington & Western was laid out in the early 1870s, and soon after, men and machines went to work moving goods and passengers along the Red Clay Valley.
Since 1966, the modern-day Wilmington & Western has moved hundreds of thousands of kids (both young and old) along this same route. We have become one of the East Coast's premier scenic tourist railroads, and our passengers come for romantic evenings, holiday celebrations, or a relaxing afternoon train ride
with family and friends.
Enjoy a 1-hour round-trip evening ride through the Red Clay Valley on an original railroad flatcar converted especially for hayrides.
This event is powered by one of our historic diesel locomotives.
October 10, November 7 & 14
|Adults:||$14||HRCV Members save $2

We have a seat waiting for you, and from that seat, you'll see the past as never
before. History will come alive, senses will be excited, and a forgotten era
will be re-lived (and we think you'll have a little fun along the way)!
old-fashioned family fun in Delaware's historic Red Clay Valley!
