Due to the popularity of last weekend’s trains to SeaLyon Farm, we’ve added another day of steamy pumpkin pickin’ fun!
Pumpkin steam trains will leave Sheepscot Station (97 Cross Road, Alna) for Top of Mountain Station at 10.30 a.m., 12 noon and 1.30 p.m., where passengers can either board a hay ride or take a 1/2-mile walk to the pumpkin patch at SeaLyon Farm. At SeaLyon Farm, visitors will be able to go into the patch and pick their very own pumpkin(s) to take home and participate in other fun activities. Pumpkins are individually priced by weight and can be purchased by cash or card at SeaLyon Farm after you pick. Board any hay ride with your pumpkin in hand for your return trip to Sheepscot. You can either sit with your pumpkin on the train, or if it is very large, have it tagged and put aboard a freight car to pick up when the train arrives at Sheepscot. The entire adventure will take 1.5 to 2 hours depending on how quickly you pick your pumpkins.
Regular train fare applies. Train tickets are only available online at wwfrytickets.simpletix.com. Pumpkins and other farm products will be sold separately by SeaLyon Farm.
We look forward to seeing you on the narrow gauge!
