Steam powered screams!
There’s something strange in this neighbourhood, it’s the Halloween Ghost Trains, returning to haunt the ELR once again.
Dare you climb aboard the spooktacular steam train for a terrifying trip to Rawtenstall and back. Enjoy a host of hauntingly hilarious tricks and treats, rub shoulders with ghouls and ghosts and show off your best fancy dress. You can even start at Bury Transport Museum’s Creepy Craft Workshop to get set for the scare!
