BOOTHBAY, Maine — Boothbay Railway Village will once again be cloaked in mystical moonlight and creepy candlelight for the annual Ghost Train, to be offered 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28 and 29.
Just once a year the ghouls and goblins come out to haunt the otherwise peaceful museum. Witches and other monsters will assist the engineer and train crew with departures every 30 minutes, the last leaving the station at 7:30 p.m.
The experience is designed to be appropriate for all ages. Guests are encouraged to dress the Halloween part. This year’s Ghost Train has been scaled back as the museum’s staff and volunteers are working on a number of important preservation projects and new exhibits.
A creepy steam train ride with a few small scares will be just $3 for anyone over 3 years old. Museum members and children under 3 are free. Tickets will be available at the door.
