Happy Holiday Railway - Weekends through Dec. 18

Pumpkin Train

Join us for the Pumpkin Train on October 22nd, 23rd, 29th, and 30th. Enjoy a ride to our pumpkin patch aboard Halloween-themed electric interurban trains. While at the patch, ask our farm hands to help you find the perfect pumpkin, and pose for pictures in our various colorful, life size cutouts, as well as an antique farm tractor and hay wagon.

Catch the next pumpkin train back to East Union, and consider riding any of the other trains operating that day. Don't forget to visit our Schroeder Store, and take time to visit the rest of the campus. There's a lot to see! Plan your visit here.
