This Epic Railroad In Delaware Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience

The Wilmington and Western Railroad (WWRR) is Delaware’s operating railroad museum. Guests ride in steam and diesel-powered locomotives while sightseeing in northern New Castle County. The railroad dates back to the late 1800s when it was used to transport goods between the mills on Red Clay Creek and the Port of Wilmington. Today the line operates to raise awareness and appreciation of the industry and beauty of the Red Clay Valley. All aboard!
