Saturday & Sunday October 21 & 22, 2023 – The Colorado Railroad Museum’s annual Halloween-themed steam-up event comes back to “haunt the rails!” Grounds are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, with activities taking place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., including train rides. Guests are encouraged to come in costume for Trick-or-Treating!

Enjoy the Olde Railroaders Silly Graveyard, “not-so-spooky” Haunted Railcars, a hay bale maze, and musical ensembles performing throughout the day in our outdoor pavilion. Bring your camera, and get a great picture of your group’s costumes in front of the Pumpkin Patch cart. Tasty treats and lunchtime food options will be available for purchase.

An authentic, coal burning Colorado steam locomotive will pull trains for this event. Hands-on demonstrations and even the Museum’s own mascot, Spike the Railroad Dog will be part of the event! Regular admission and train ride pricing apply. Capacity is limited, so advance ticket purchase is recommended.

Admission $10 adults, $5 ages 2-17, $8 seniors ages 60+; Train Rides $4 adults and seniors, $2 ages 2-17. Admission and Train Rides free for members. All Aboard!

Advance purchase of admission and train ride tickets is recommended, especially if you have a specific Train Ride time in mind. Capacity is limited, so don’t delay. Book your tickets online today for the special event and steamup – CLICK HERE!!
