Trains on November 30, 2008


A day on the Wilmington and Western with family

My brother Vinnie doesn't come up with too many great ideas, but this one was a winner for sure. He recently moved to Delaware and you can hear the whistle from a short line railroad which operates near his home. The Wilmington and Western Railroad is 140 years old and operates on ten miles of track. Doesn't sound like much but it is a fun ride. The railroad is run entirely by volunteers who have a love of the railroad.

The landscape along the Red Clay Creek is amazing and people are very friendly. I personally love when the train goes through the rock cut out. You can see how tight the fit is.
