Railfanning areas around Wilmington, Delaware?

Recommended Posts

I am on a trip up to Wilmington tomorrow on Saturday, and have 3 hours to spend in the city. Has anyone been around the rails around there, because I know looking from the train in the direction of Philadelphia they have a yard nearby, so any info is appreciated.

 

Here is the train station below: Zoom in on point A

The DART buses are not very interesting to see, plus it's gonna be midday on Saturday, I won't see too many, probably just a pic or two for them. But what do you mean it doesn't have a rail system?

Subway to Penn > NJT to Septa> Septa to Patco > Grab a Philly CheeseSteak > Patco to Septa> Septa to Wilmington! Haha, purrfect alignment if it is possible...

 

I believe that would be:

Take the NYCT Subway to Penn Station, catch the NJT Northeast Corridor Line to 30th Street, ride the SEPTA Market Frankford Line to PATCO High Speed Line to 15th-Locust. Then grab a steak. Well, you could grab it anywhere in Philly. (But I would say Gino's or Pat's King of Steaks). Ride PATCO to 8th Street, WALK to Market East Station, take the SEPTA Regional Rail R2 to Wilmington.

That's a hell of a ride.

The Northeast Corridor line doesn't go to 30th Street Philadelphia, it terminates in Trenton, NJ. You would have to transfer to the SEPTA R7 line to get into Philly.

So on Sunday I plan to go and try the hotbed station for pictures, I have already tried to mess with the settings on my camera, so they come out good, I just hope it's a sunny day, and not as cold as the previous ones in the state. I'll freeze my a$$ off staying 7 hours outside! :eek:
