Ride the train to get to the Pumpkin Patch (pumpkins extra price.) The trains will take visitors to the Pumpkin Patch where they can select their pumpkins for purchase.
To celebrate its restoration, it is planned to have Western Pacific SW1500 1503 pulling all trains for both weekends.
This year’s Pumpkin Patch Express trains will be held October 19-20 and 26-27, Saturdays and Sundays. The museum will open at 10 AM all four days. Trains will depart hourly from 1 PM to 5 PM for the Pumpkin Patch.
On Saturday nights, our Super Spooky Night Trains will depart hourly between 7 PM and 9 PM. Gates close at 6 PM on Sunday and 9:30 PM on Saturday.
In addition to the Pumpkin Patch, our Haunted Railcar will open and we will also have an all-ages Haunted Car for the kids. Food and craft vendors will be on hand and a gunfighter performance group will be part of the entertainment. Some additional special things may also appear!
Admission is free for FRRS members. Non-member admission is $10 per carload, or $5 with the donation of 3 non-perishable canned goods for the EPCAN food bank.
