Join Us at the WK&S Railroad

Step back into history and ride the WK&S Railroad! Unmatched in terms of authenticity and scenic diversity, a trip on the WK&S is like a trip back in time! During your 40-minute round trip, enjoy forests, streams, tree-covered hills, bridges and the two old-time towns of Trexler and Wanamakers.

During your ride, disembark the train for a picnic lunch at Fuhrman’s Grove, travel in an authentic caboose, or simply relax and enjoy the views.

In addition to our Sunday train rides (offered every Sunday, May through the first Sunday in November), we also offer a variety of special event train rides throughout the year for “kids” of all ages! There’s Easter Bunny…Bow Wow Express…Wine & Cheese…Apple Picking…Pumpkin Patch and ending our season with our Santa Claus Express!
