FIRST DELAWARE RAILROAD LINE

New Castle, Delaware,  1 September 1832:

The first trip by a locomotive train occurred in Delaware as the New Castle to Frenchtown Railroad, the first railroad in Delaware the first State and one of the first in the United States which opened in 1831.  This first year the train was pulled by a horse team, switching to a steam locomotive in 1832. The railroad originally meandered southwest from New Castle, Delaware to Frenchtown, Cecil county, Maryland
