New Halloween Train Added to 2015 Schedule!


You asked! We listened!

This October, treat your kids to a new tradition in the Hocking Valley!

Just added to the schedule, the Trunk-or-Treat Train will be a great time to make lasting memories with your family! Dress up in family-friendly costumes for a most haunting evening! Departing the historic former industrial center of Nelsonville, the train leaves the depot at 6:00 p.m. for a 2-hour round-trip ride along the spooky Hocking River Valley as night sets in. Once back at the depot, there will be more volunteers and their families on-hand to give away candy to all of the spooktacular kids!

Boy Scouts will also be at the depot before and after the train ride selling hot dogs, chips and soda pop to raise funds for their troop!

Enjoy a great evening out with the family for the new Trunk-or-Treat Train on Saturday, October 10th! Our all-volunteer-operated train departs at 6:00 p.m.

Tickets start at just $12 for kids ages 3-12 (kids under age 3 don’t need a ticket but must sit on a parent/guardian’s lap). Adults (ages 13-59) are $17 and seniors ages 60 and up are $15.

You are more than welcome to bring food and non-alcoholic drinks aboard the train.

If you or a member of your party is in need of some assistance in boarding the train, our friendly volunteers will be there to assist! We also have a wheelchair lift available at the depot should you need, but please allow extra time to board.

We ask that you please arrive at the depot at least 30 minutes (or more) prior to departure time to allow time to park, pick up your tickets at the depot, get your seats (seating is first-come, first served!), and make a restroom stop. As our equipment is original from the 1920s through the 1940s and mostly used in commuter train service, they were not equipped with restrooms, so we strongly recommend using the facilities in the depot before departure. Also please note that no pets are permitted on the train except for certified guide animals.
