Join us for a week of ghoulish goings on here at the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway between Saturday 22nd October- Sunday 30th October! The spookiest season of all is just around the corner and we’ll be running plenty of special activities at the railway to get the whole family in the spirit. With decorated stations and cafés, museum activity and exhibition, a pumpkin competition, double-headed trains, and a line quiz ‘Witch Trail’ with a small prize upon completion, your trip to the railway in October half-term will be jam-packed with frightening fun.
ENTER OUR PUMPKIN COMPETITION Each child bringing a carved pumpkin to the railway will travel free when accompanied by a full paying adult (pre-purchased online child tickets can be refunded upon arrival in the ticket office). If details are left with the pumpkin (which will be displayed and may feature on our social media channels) you will be entered into a competition for the best pumpkin carving. The railway’s creative team will judge this on Sunday 30th October with the lucky winner receiving a free return ticket for a family of four and a sweetie goody bag.
HALLOWEEN FUN AND GAMES Our younger visitors are also invited to take part in a ‘witch-trail’ quiz as they travel up the line. Each witch will reveal a letter and when they are all added to the special sheet provided, a spooky word will be revealed. There will be a small prize for each correctly completed sheet handed in on the day of travel. On the Monday – Friday of this half-term week we can offer the added spectacle of some double header trains (pulled by two steam engines rather than just one). These will feature on the 10:25 departure from Ravenglass to Irton Road with full line returns departing Ravenglass at 11:25 and 13:50. These arrangements are subject to availability and change without notice due to operational reasons.
Terms & Conditions: Pumpkin Carving – all pumpkins left for the judging cannot be returned after competition close. Pumpkin Judging – winners will be notified by email within 48 hours of the judging date 30th October. Free Kids – One free place for each child with a carved pumpkin travelling with a full fare paying adult. Online pre-booked tickets will be refunded on the day of travel. Offer valid from Saturday 22nd October to Sunday 30th October. Please note trains may change to published times without notice due to operational reasons.
