Pumpkin Express Returns to Campo

The Pumpkin Express returns to the creepy confines of the Campo Railroad Park and Museum Saturdays and Sundays during October.  First, ride the train in one of our vintage railroad coaches or in our first class lounge car ATSF 1509.  Then, detrain at our haunted Display Building where you can walk through our two haunted trains (one meant to spook you and the other tame for our younger visitors), pick out a pumpkin at the pumpkin patch, and other arts and crafts.  More information is available at
