    Name: Pumpkin Special Weekend
    Date: October 21, 2023 - October 22, 2023
    Event Description:
    Pumpkin Special™
    October 21-22, 2023
    A Harvest Time Tradition
    Finding your Halloween pumpkin is more fun at Mid-Continent Railway Museum. Climb aboard the Pumpkin Special and make your way to Quartzite Lake where pumpkins brought to the train from a local farmer await your arrival. Pick out your pumpkin(s) of choice and bring your newly acquired “cargo” aboard with you for the return trip to North Freedom.
    All aboard!


    There are four Coach/Caboose departures per day, both Saturday and Sunday. Each departure travels the full 7-mile round-trip route and is scheduled to last 55-minutes. Depending on crowd size, trip times may be slightly longer in order to allow passengers adequate time to purchase pumpkins.

    Note: A wheelchair lift providing handicap accessibility to the train is located at the North Freedom depot (origin station) but is not available at Quartzite Lake (end of line) where the pumpkins are located, preventing the alighting of handicapped passengers
