Ghost Train

Feeling brave? Well come and board our spectacularly spooky ghost train! Travel down the line in darkness and keep those eyes peeled for some of our fiendish friends who may try to say 'Hallo'! Try not to get spooked!

Travel around in the day, but make sure you reserve your special seat on the Ghost Train back down the valley. This event is very popular and must be booked in advance.
Ghost Train steams out of Dalegarth Hollow at 6pm. The Turntable Café will be open to purchase hot dogs and hot drinks when you return to Ravenglass Station if you wish.

Local author Gianna Hartwright will also be around during the day doing readings from her book The Befana Drama, a wonderful tail about a young witch!

Ticket price £15 adult and £7.50 child, ticket includes all day travel, a reserved seat on the Ghost Train, meet Ratty and collect your spooky sweet goody bag when or if you return!
