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 1½-hour round-trip to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy during the ½-hour layover at the grove.

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