Review of the West Chester Railroad

West Chester Railroad, Pennsylvania

West Chester Railroad, located in West Chester Pennsylvania is a tourist railroad that takes passengers through the beautiful Chester Creek Valley.   Boarding passengers can get on the historical dining or passenger cars either at the West Chester Station or at the Glen Mills Station. The round trip between the West Chester and Glen Mills is about 90 minutes with ample time to stop and explore briefly before re-boarding to return to your original location.  The Glen Mills Station in the village of Glen Mills is a beautifully restored Victorian station and operates as a museum by the Thornbury Historical Society.  On the grounds of the Glen Mills Station is a Picnic Grove.

The ride on the West Chester Railroad runs between Market Street in West Chester, Chester County and the village of Glen Mills, Delaware County, Pennsylvania and takes you through a very scenic countryside full of streams and trees. The railroad is planning future stops at the old Westtown station, which now operates as art gallery, the 19th century village and station at Cheyney, and the Locksley Station, all along the way towards the village of Glen Mills.

The West Chester Railroad offers a variety of nostalgic train trips in conjunction with special events in the towns along the line.  Throughout the year, The West Chester Railroad offers "Special Events" and offers their services for Railroad parties, school groups, executive and company meetings, church groups, scenic picnics, mystery tours and even a wedding train, with complete catering available to their guests.

The city of West Chester, one of the nation's oldest county seats, has plenty to help you enjoy the rest of your day with shopping and dining everywhere. Visit the nearby "History Center" at the Chester County Historical Society or see the American Helicopter Museum nearby.  In southern Chester and western Delaware County, there are numerous attractions to enjoy as well, such as Longwood Gardens, the Brandywine River Museum and the Brandywine Battlefield.
