This little historic volunteer railroad is a gem and deserves your visit. I have been riding the train here since I was a baby and hope to continue visiting until I keel-over. Great train ride through woods, along a stream, by fields and an orchard.

Great little railroad for young kids. The train ride is just long enough so the kids don't get bored.

very nice small railroad - occasional steam trains but usually a diesel engine. the station is a work of art. Kempton is a tiny village (feed mill, pub and a few houses). the trip is about 6 miles up to Wanamakers and back - they have open wagons and some classic oldies with bamboo seats HIghly recommended and great for...

We discovered this place by chance on Google looking for a train ride for the kids and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed at all! Great experience, the kids really enjoyed it and so did us adults. The staff is exceptional here - I believe most, if not all, are volunteers. They were all super friendly,... More

Stopped by and this little spot is very nice. Clean and manicured. Nice trains and has rides on Sundays. There are shops onsite. Worth an hour or so to explore.

The cars are a bit old . There... More

Nice train complete with a caboose you can ride in. Very nice restored. About a 6 mile ride..takes about 45 min. Goes slow and wooded area. Some beautiful gardens and homes along the way. The staff was nice about being helpful and happy we came. Cute tickets. Only open on the weekends I think. Check for their schedule. Seasonal rides... More

The web site for WK&S has a train schedule, but we went there thinking it would be open to tour (walk aboard and see) on last Monday. It turns out it is run by volunteers and the trains and buildings were closed. It's a cool collection of train cars, station, and locomotives, but you will not see the insides unless... More
