West Chester Railroad Great Pumpkin Express

Mark your calendars, next weekend take a ride on the West Chester Railroad Haunted Train as the friendly (and only slightly ghoulish) crew gives out treats (and some tricks) to each of the passengers. Everyone is encouraged to dress up in Halloween costumes. It’s not too scary for the little ones; it’s Halloween fun while enjoying the Chester Creek autumn scenery from the comfort of a heated train which departs at 12pm & 2pm.

Also, don’t forget about the Fall Foliage Express ride taking place this Sunday, October 13th. Enjoy a brisk fall afternoon along the Chester Creek Valley as the West Chester Railroad  takes you on a 90-minute journey to the village of Glen Mills and back. For more information on both events visit West Chester Railroad website, www.westchesterrr.net.
