Danbury Railway Museum’s Pumpkin Patch Train Rides
October 1 - October 30
It’s the Fall harvest season so what better way to celebrate and welcome in the cooler weather than with a short ride on a vintage train to the Danbury Railway Museum’s Pumpkin Patch.
This popular annual family fund-raising event will take place on five weekends, October 1-2, 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, and 29-30, 2022 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the museum, with trains departing at 11:00 AM, 12 noon, 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM Admission is $16.00 for ages 2 and over; children under 24 months are free.
Ride a 1950’s train through the Danbury Railway Museum rail yard to the Pumpkin Patch, where children under 12 pick out a pumpkin.
Ride “The Husking Bee” Pumpkin Patch train through the historic railyard in a 1920’s passenger coach, pulled by a vintage ALCo RS-1 diesel-electric locomotive (or other vintage locomotive, subject to availability) to the special pumpkin patch where each child ages 2-12 can select a free pumpkin. Everyone can enjoy some free cider & cookies. There are numerous photo ops and even a vintage tractor!
Back due to its popularity last year is the “haunted caboose;” visit it if you dare! Of course, the exhibits, artifacts, and multiple operating model train layouts inside the restored over 100-year old Danbury station will be open for your education and entertainment. Out in the railyard, go inside real railroad cars and locomotives. There is a fully-stocked gift shop on the premises. The event will be held rain or shine. Reservations are recommended and can be made online at .
