MLES Daytime Pumpkin Trains

October 15, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Come and join the Milwaukee Light Engineering Society for a ride in the day light – the MLES Daytime Pumpkin Trains! There will be a run day out at railroad park. All members and the public are welcome to enjoy a day of train rides. Public attendees will be asked to sign in before taking any train rides. Donations are appreciated.

Details: Daytime rides are offered at no charge. Donations to the club are appreciated. You may ride as many times as you’d like. We will continue to work with our members to schedule additional pumpkin train events as the season progresses. We need to make sure we have enough members and equipment available to operate and provide a safe experience. Come and join us for a ride and experience the railroad decorated for Halloween at our 16th Annual Pumpkin Train event. Family friendly… nothing scary! Bring the family and come enjoy our hobby with us. Limited concessions and restrooms are also available.
Important Event Information:
