Welcome to a night of freaks and shrieks. A night of terrifying tales under a full moon’s light. Tales of horror, fear and hate shared by the spirits of our very own depot. Our ghouls and ghost have lived a life of strife and horror, and how they each met their end will chill you to the bone.

Haunted Lantern Tours is a Halloween event in which the volunteers and staff dress up to tell scary stories to the guest on a guided tour. The yearly event is sponsored by Trent Bedding and all proceeds from tickets go to support the Historic RailPark & Train Museum.
