Program Description

The railroad was once an important link to the outside world for many Delawareans and the local depot was the center of the community, a place to catch a train and learn the news of the day. As tracks spread downstate, growth followed the lines. This slide-illustrated program traces the social history of trains in the First State, from the beginning of the railroad age to the present.
