  • Wilmington & Western Railroad
    When record amounts of water from Tropical Storm Henri ravaged Red Clay Valley, it left six historic bridges destroyed and reduced the 10-mile Wilmington & Western Railroad to a mere two miles. The railroad is no stranger to change—since officially opening for passenger and freight service in 1872, the approximately 20-mile track was gradually shortened before beginning to escort tourists on steam-powered jaunts in 1966. Through all its transformations, the rail has persevered, and its encounter with Tropical Storm Henri was no exception. By June 30, 2007, the track was restored and Royal Blue coaches followed a locomotive 98 for the first 10-mile journey on the track in nearly four years. These days, Wilmington & Western Railroad's locomotives continue to follow Red Clay Creek on leisurely round-trip jaunts, romantic rides, and themed excursions. After their ride, youngsters can learn about railroading heritage with a series of online games, and individuals or groups can charter a train for subsequent travels to any destination along the line.

    Whenever a customer at Payless Airport Parking calls for a shuttle, it's guaranteed that the company's sleek, silver van will arrive to pick them up within 10 minutes. The parking service shuttles its customers to and from Philadelphia International Airport and ensures this prompt arrival whether the customer is waiting at the garage counter or just woke up from a power nap on the baggage-claim carousel. While their owners are away, cars are kept locked in a secure, gated area. During this time, staff technicians can keep each vehicle in top condition with hand washes, oil changes, and tire rotations. To aid those who have arrived in Philadelphia but haven't brought a car, Payless Airport Parking also operates a rental service. The service oversees eight vehicle makes and models, each of which are primed for pickup with a hand wash.

  • Wheel Fun Rentals
    When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
