Spend a haunted evening on the rails
The Society for the Preservation of Carter Railroad Resources (SPCRR) and The Railroad Museum at Ardenwood Historic Farm present the 2012 Haunted Railroad. In 1880 the SPCRR was the South Pacific Coast Railroad, a narrow-gauge railroad that steamed south across the marshes and farms of Alameda and Santa Clara Counties, then wound through the mountains and forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains until it reached the ocean at Santa Cruz.
Now, in memory of its days of glory, volunteers work to restore railcars and operate on 1-1/2 miles of track in Ardenwood using hand tools and 19th century techniques. As days grow short in the fall, ghosts of the past make themselves known during the evening hours and revel in the preservation of their past glories.
Climb aboard a narrow gauge railroad for a frightfully fun ride through the dark forests of Ardenwood. The entire family will enjoy the ghoulishly grand ride to nowhere and back on the haunted rails of the Ghost Train.
This event is tailored for families with children 12 years of age and under. All children must be with an adult, but for safety reasons each child under three years of age must be accompanied by a separate adult.
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Nights October 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, & 28 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (9:00 p.m. on Sundays) Adults (13 and older) $6 and Children (3-12 years) $4 (Credit cards accepted).
Tickets are sold in advance starting Oct. 1st at The Book End, 5678 Thornton Ave, Newark and on operating nights at the gate. Groups (10 or more) may make reservations by telephone at (866)417-7277
