Tickets are now on sale for friends, neighbors, and families to ride the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad’s 2019 Pumpkin Train. Children, as well as adults, are encouraged to wear costumes and help create a fun-filled Halloween atmosphere. The Chehalis Valley train excursions are Saturday, October 26, at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. On Sunday, October 27, the rides are at 11:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. All excursions are approximately 30 minutes long. Goody bags of treats and pumpkins, provided by WillyTee’s Pumpkin Patch, are ready for eager children under age 15. Age groups will gather in the nearby railyard after each train ride. The cost is $15 per person for the ride, pumpkin and goody bag, with children 2 and under free.
Reserve tickets in advance to ensure seating at SteamTrainRide.com. Tickets are general admission so come early to have a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. A limited number of walk-up tickets are available for each ride in the depot. It’s suggested to arrive a half-hour prior to boarding as the train leaves the station promptly at the top of the hour. Parking is free and snacks and concessions are available in the depot prior to departure.
Please note: The train cars are not heated so dress appropriately. Due to the restoration work on the steam locomotive, the Pumpkin Train will be pulled by our #6 Diesel locomotive.
Ride dates: Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27.
Located at Exit 77 halfway between Seattle and Portland, just off I-5.
