What a neat experience! How often do you get to ride on an old train? My boys love the "sky car" at the back where they can ride up at the top of the car. Inside, of course.

We enjoyed the fall pumpkin train ride. The train takes you to a small depot for a break. During the break they switch the direction of the train. My kids thought that was a pretty cool thing watching the trains hook back up. On the way back they stop at a pumpkin patch. You get off the train and pick out your pumpkin. This is not a real pumpkin patch with vines, etc. They just put some pumpkins in a field for the kids to pick. We actually liked this a little better than the pumpkin patch because there were no vines to trip over.

The depot has a cute little store. It is a little run down but it is an old depot. This is a great day of fun. If your kids love trains or you have been doing a train study this would be a great way to bring it to life.
