I had anticipated a potential layout design and more coverage of cars and locomotives. They may come in futures posts, but for now I’d like to conclude the series with a brief update (as of July 18-20, 2014) of action in Delaware and touch on another great aspect to Delaware–microbrews.
Venturing to the east side of Harrington we see a Norfolk Southern local servicing Mountaire Farms just as the Delaware State Fair was getting underway nearby.
More on the above business in Part I of the series.
Venturing further east, we come to Milford, the home of Mispillion River Brewing company and two of the businesses we visited in Part II of the series–Growmark FS and United States Cold Storage. No action was witnessed here.
Going to the end of the line, Milton, there was rail activity. I did not cover this business in the earlier post–Baker Heating Oils.
I didn’t include it before because the aerial did not clearly indicate the presence of rail activity. Below is what was there July 20, 2014. Obviously, a spur has been constructed.
Milton is also home to a famous brewery, Dogfish Head Brewing Company.
If you are in Milton, it is worth a stop over. The brewery is a fun place to visit with free samples, tours and you can grab snack there as well. Bocce balls can be checked out to play on their nice courts on the grounds of the brewery.
In addition to Dogfish Head and Mispillion River, there are many great microbreweries in DE including the nearby 16 Mile in Georgetown and Old Dominion in Dover. Delaware is a great place for beer aficionados.
Hope you enjoyed the Delaware roadtrip and update.
