Quick Overview

Join us for on one of our annual Pumpkin Trains! These trains are extremely popular and often sell out, so buy your tickets early! Select a date and time from the drop-down list above. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Ride aboard the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum's popular tourist train as we take in the sites and sounds of rural life while traveling through the farmland of Northwest Indiana. See plenty of wildflowers, birds, butterflies and other wildlife. This trip will also take you across the Kankakee River bridge at English Lake.

Then we'll take you back to our pumpkin patch, where you can choose a pumpkin of your choice (buy pumpkins for just $2.00 when you purchase your tickets).
