Trick or Treat Train 2020!
Saturday-Sunday, October 24-25, 2020
Trick or Treat Train (Featuring a vintage Steam Locomotive!)

It’s full steam ahead for tricks, treats and trains! Join us for the Trick or Treat Train at the Colorado Railroad Museum this weekend. The event runs both Saturday and Sunday, and features Steam Train Rides plus lots of socially distanced family fun!

The Railroad Museum is a family friendly place to enjoy Trick or Treating. While you’re here, catch a Train Ride behind a powerful steam locomotive (Denver & Rio Grande Western No. 491) in vintage open-air passenger cars, hosted by conductors and engineers in full costume. There’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy!

Visit all of the special stops with your treat bags, and tickle your funny bones at the “not so spooky” Haunted Railcar and the Olde Railroaders Silly Graveyard. Enjoy live entertainment, visit our local vendors for a tasty treat, and get photos with the family in front of our Pumpkin Patch cart and Harvest-decorated historical locomotives and railcars.

Know Before You Go:

Although regular Museum Admission and Train Rides are free for Museum Members, we suggest advance reservations regardless.
