Ghost Train 2011

Ghost Train 2011It’s that time of year for tricks, treats, and poor Halloween-related puns. And to celebrate, instead of our annual Ghost Train we are using our lovely new building at Ridgmont Station to host some ghouly goings-on.

So come and visit us between 3pm and 6pm on Thursday 31st October for some Halloween-related fun in our newly-restored building. When we renovated it, we couldn’t get rid of any or our resident ghosts, who may make an appearance. If your kids do make an appearance, they will get a free goody bag. There will also be a special ghostly menu in our lovely tea rooms.

It’s free to enter, and trains stop quite literally outside the door. So come and join us if you dare…

    Things are shaping up for Thursday afternoon. Sadly we won’t have our Face Painter this time but our Balloon Modeller is booked and we will have a children’s activity table too. Pauline who runs the Tea Room is putting on a Special Spooky menu for the kids while more traditional teas will still be available in the Tea Room.
    Don’t forget you can visit the former ticket office to see how the restoration is progressing – lots of interesting photographs – and of course there’s the shop full of goodies including books by local authors, some new and 2nd hand/as new model railway items, glove puppets, craft items etc.

    Please note that neither the shop nor the Tea Room can accept card payment at the moment – cash or cheque only – apologies for the inconvenience.

    More news when we have it :)
