I know it's a few weeks late, but here are my pictures from the Wilmington and Western's Hockession Express.
 
Traffic and other delays caused us to miss the train's arrival into Hockession. 98 and the combine park at where the speeches were done

Numerous speeches were given by railroad and government officials.  
I knew W&W was popular, but I didn't know it was the fourth most popular tourist attraction in Delaware
