HALLOWEEN EXPRESS

Our friendly railroad witch visits the Wilmington & Western to ride the train and visit with all children. All passengers in costume (both adults and children) ride for just $10 on this 1-hour round-trip to Mt. Cuba. This train does not lay over at the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove.

PURCHASE A PUMPKIN!
We will be selling pumpkins at the station for your little ghost or goblin to decorate. Pumpkins are limited in quantity and will be available for $3 each or 2 for $5. Our pumpkins were donated to the railroad by a generous supporter, so 100% of your pumpkin purchase will directly support the Wilmington & Western!

This event is powered by one of our antique steam locomotives.
