Wilmington and Western Father’s Day Special

Thanks to my lovely wife, I went on a wonderful steam excursion last weekend on the Wilmington and Western Railroad in Delaware. W&W RR’s Baldwin 0-6-0 #58 pulled and pushed the Father’s Day Special on a round-trip from Greenbank to Ashland, Delaware. Passengers had the option of detraining at Mt. Cuba and I decided to step off to watch the train pull out of Mt. Cuba. Here are photos and video:
