Welcome to the Wanamaker, Kempton and Southern Railroad! Established in 1963, the WK&S is located in the scenic village of Kempton, Pennsylvania, in Berks County. We are also known as the "Hawk Mountain Line" because of our proximity to the famous bird sanctuary. Our quiet, rural setting adds to the quaint old-time atmosphere that appeals to families and children of all ages.

Join us weekends from May through November for a ride back in time to when railroads were "king." The WK&S offers special events throughout the season, including the popular December season finale Santa Claus Special.

We also offer private charters, caboose rentals, and group rates. Would you like to rent a caboose for a birthday party? Are you getting married or renewing your vows and want a unique way to celebrate the occasion? Check our charter the train page for more information — a variety of options and prices are available to fit your group size and budget!
