Wanamaker, Kempton
& Southern

The Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern is a small tourist steam railroad located in the northern tip of Berks County Pennsylvania. I began riding the WK&S even before I was born. Then, as a child, I would ride the line as many times as I could talk my parents or grandparents into taking me. Finally, as an adult, I began volunteering at the WK&S back in 1990 and have been at it ever since. I've worked my way through all the crew positions including Brakeman, Conductor, Fireman and Engineer. Although small, the WK&S is largely unmatched in terms of authenticity and scenic diversity. Check out the link below to the WK&S web site for directions, schedules and fares. Then scroll down this page for links to more photographs and information.

A typical WK&S consist includes two coaches, the open car and a caboose powered by 0-6-0 steam locomotive #65. The above photo shows the train preparing to depart Wanamaker for the southbound return trip to Kempton.
