Join your friends, neighbors, and families on Chehalis Centralia Railroad’s 2020 Pumpkin Train. A new feature this year, on October 30 at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., is the Haunted Halloween Train for adults 21 years and over.

For the Pumpkin Trains, excursions are Saturdays, October 24 and 31, and Sunday, October 25, at 12:00 noon and 1:30 p.m. Rides are approximately 30 minutes long. Children, as well as adults, are encouraged to wear costumes and participate in the costume contest for all age groups, (masks are required) and help create a fun-filled Halloween atmosphere. All COVID-19 suggested guidelines will be in place. Pumpkins, provided by WillyTee’s Pumpkin Patch, are ready for eager children under age 15. The cost is $15 per person for the ride, pumpkins and a goody bag.  Children 2 and under are free. Reserve your tickets in advance to ensure seating at Click on Tickets.

Costume contest, prizes, refreshments on board and scary fun galore. The excursion, followed by a visit to our own Haunted Halloween House (railcar), departs for the unknown at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. $45 per person. By reservation only. Click on Tickets at

Reserve your tickets in advance at Click on Tickets. 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 if seats are available. We suggest coming ½ hr prior to boarding as the train leaves the station promptly at the “bewitching” hour! Snacks and concessions are available in the Depot prior to departure. Free Parking.

Please note: the train cars are not heated so dress appropriately. Due to the restoration work on the steam locomotive, the Pumpkin Train and Haunted Halloween Trains will be pulled by our #6 Diesel locomotive.
