West Chester History Train

Have you ever wondered what it was like to ride the railroad during the 19th and early 20th century? Or how the surrounding communities and railroad stations appeared along the West Chester line? Come on board the West Chester Railroad for a train ride back into history about one of the earliest operating railroads in America.

West Chester Railroad Treasurer and historian David Walter, and West Chester University Professor Jim Jones will provide an interactive presentation with passengers and bring the scenic 8 miles of track alive with the area's rich history.
