This abandoned railway passed through mostly farming areas of Delaware and Maryland's eastern shore. It was a branch off of the Pennsylvania RR's Delmarva peninsula line. It was originally constructed as part of the Philadelphia Wilmington & Baltimore, which was later acquired by PRR. Heading west from Clayton, the line served Bingham and Delaneys, DE and Massey, MD. (Massey still has rail service through shortline Maryland & Delaware, which operates other former PRR branches).
The entire line and remnants are out of service, even though some segments of track are still in place. There were no easily located remnants of this line west of Clayton, although it did appear to run parallel to a section of Holletts Corner Rd. in northern Kent County.
