Ride the Railway to SeaLyon Farm for an Unforgettable Pumpkin Picking Experience!
Board your Pumpkin Pickin’ train at Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) for a 20-minute steam-powered ride through the wild pine forests, farmlands and hamlets of the Sheepscot Valley to Top of Mountain where you’ll transfer to a tractor-drawn hay ride to the pumpkin patch at SeaLyon Farm.
At SeaLyon Farm, you’ll be able to go into the patch to pick your very own pumpkin(s) to take home while participating in other fun fall activities. Pumpkins are priced by size and can be purchased by cash or card at SeaLyon Farm after you pick. Board the hay ride with your perfect 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, put it aboard to pick up when the train arrives at Sheepscot. The entire experience takes just under 2.5 hours. However, trains return from SeaLyon Farm frequently (until 4:00pm) – so feel free to explore and enjoy the farm as long as you would like!
Ticket price includes a seven mile round trip aboard the historic train, hayride to the Farm, unlimited horse-drawn wagon rides at the farm (when available), as well as parking at Sheepscot. All pumpkins, food, additional refreshments, goodies, and other farm products are sold separately by SeaLyon Farm and their partners. Note that due to the nature of this event, wheelchairs can not be accommodated.
Unfortunately, pets can not be accommodated during this special event.
Pumpkin Pickin’ Trains to SeaLyon Farm depart Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) promptly at their stated departure times. Please anticipate traffic conditions on Route 1 in Wiscasset. Do not drive to SeaLyon Farm – you’ll miss the train!
We look forward to seeing you on the narrow gauge!
Rent the WW&F caboose on your Pumpkin Pickin’ train for the exclusive use of your whole family (or small group) of up to 15 people. (And yes, you may ride in the cupola, if you so wish.)
NOTE: Caboose Adventure passengers should plan for an approx. 70 minute stayover at SeaLyon Farm. While longer stays at the farm are welcome, your party will likely be seated with the coach passengers during your return trip.

After picking pumpkins, take a walk down to the pond, stroll back to the railway station, or take the hayride back to the railway with your pumpkin in tow.
