  • Halloween Ghost Trains

    Get set for some good, old fashioned, steam powered scares on the spooktacular Halloween Ghost Trains! Join an eclectic cast of giggling ghouls and ghosts on a haunted steam train ride to Rawtenstall and back through dark tunnels and past lonely stations. Terrifying treats are available at the station buffet, plus every child gets a goody bag! As if that wasn’t enough, the Creepy Craft Workshop at Bury Transport Museum provides the perfect way to get set for the scare!

    You can choose your time and even your scare level, so whether you fancy getting slightly spooked or totally terrified the East Lancashire Railway has you covered. Tickets cost £14.50 per adult and £7.50 per child. Under 3’s travel for free.

    Tickets must be purchased in advance, for more information, and to book your tickets, please click here!
