Pumpkin Train Rides

Come and join the Milwaukee Light Engineering Society  for a ride in the dark! 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.

Special Event admission is:

  • $10 per person over age 18
  • $5 per person age 4-18
  • Free for ages 0-3
  • Cash only. You may ride as many times as you’d like.
PLEASE NOTE: We have a limited capacity for the number of people which we can accommodate safely. We reserve the right to close the gate early or temporarily to limit the number of guests per our capacity limits and maintain a safe environment. The gate attendant can provide further information if needed.  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.
Important Event Information:
– If you have older children, please consider coming around 7:30 to 8:00 PM, historically our crowd size dwindles at this time in the evening. We will load and depart trains from the station until 9:00 PM.
