Halloween Scary Specials

Next weekend will be our Halloween Scary Special trains. During the day, we run our normal train service, using a diesel locomotive. Trains will run at 1130, 1200, 1230, 1330, 1400, 1430 and the last train at 1500.
We then take a short break to re-set the scene. From 4pm, we will run the Scary Specials using a steam loco. These trains will run at frequent intervals until a last train at 8pm. The event is suitable for all ages – we aim to amuse, not terrify. For very little ones, it might be better to come before it gets too dark – please remember that the clocks change, so it gets dark an hour earlier on Sunday than on Saturday.
Passengers in fancy dress are especially welcomed – join in the spirit of the evening!
Please dress suitably for the weather – you will be in open sided coaches, and there can sometimes be a queue to board the train. There’s a chance (actually, pretty much a certainty) you may get wet – so be prepared!
There’s no need to book in advance, we are charging our standard fares – just £4 adult, £2.50 children (under 3 goes for free) and £9 family (2 adults and up to four children).
Our friends at the Apedale Heritage Centre will be keeping their café open until late in case you need a hot drink to steady the nerves. Finally, we would also recommend brining a torch – the paths to the car parks can be dark.
