Wilmington & Western Railroad #98
Winter on the Wilmington & Western Heritage Railroad!
The Wilmington & Western Heritage Railroad dates back to 1867 when it was first incorporated as the Delaware and Chester County Railroad. Most of the excursions travel through Red Clay Creek in Northern Delaware which is seen here covered in snow.
The excursion seen here was considered a photographers special with mother nature lending a helping hand.
