Pumpkin Express

Purchase Tickets Now!

Join the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum Association in our annual Pumpkin Express Halloween Celebration.  Come ride our decorated vintage railcars through the San Diego county mountains as fall descends upon Campo, CA.  Walk through our themed Display Building complete with Halloween scenes, a pumpkin patch, and our creepy cast of ghosts and ghouls.

Start your spooky day off right with a train ride.  Trains depart from the Campo Depot at 10:30 AM, 11:45 AM, 1:45 PM, and 3:00 PM.  The Pumpkin Express will wind down the hill through some of the most scenic parts of the historic San Diego and Arizona Railway.

After the train returns to the museum grounds, passengers will be let off at the Display Building where children and their parents will enjoy decorating pumpkins from our outdoor pumpkin patch and walking past our collection of Halloween scenes and through our haunted train.  Pumpkins are included in the purchase of every Toddler and Child ticket on the Pumpkin Express. Additional pumpkins may be purchased for $5 each.  Passengers of all ages are encouraged to arrive in costume. Don’t miss out on this truly unique opportunity.

PSRMA is excited to announce the return of First Class tickets on our Pumpkin Express! Those riding in ATSF 1509 can enjoy a premium atmosphere, complimentary soft drinks, and light assorted candies and snacks. Please consider upgrading your seating to First Class today.

Wheelchairs and Other Mobility Equipment

PSRMA makes every effort to provide assistance for the mobility impaired on our trains.  However, our passenger cars were designed before wheelchair access was mandated by law.  Wheelchairs, power chairs, walkers, scooters, and other mobility devices may not fit through the doorways or aisleways our passenger cars.  It may be necessary for mobility-impaired passengers to walk through doorways, up stairs, or down a hallway under their own power with the assistance of a family member or Museum personnel.  Please email info@psrm.org if you have additional questions or need to verify the size of your mobility equipment.


Note: All trains depart from the Campo Depot located at 750 Depot St., Campo, CA 91906.
