- Special Fall train rides in October & November
- Two different Fall excursions to choose from!
All aboard! Fall is a relatively short season here in Huntsville, but one of our favorite ones because there’s so much to do! Definitely be sure to add the North Alabama Railroad Museum to your Fall Must List if you have a young train enthusiast. They offer two different train rides through the countryside, and if you act fast you can snag seats on both this year.
We did the fall colors ride. Fun for the kids and a cool history lesson. We’ll be back! – Christina B.
Special Fall Train Rides at the North Alabama Railroad Museum
Punkin’ Pickin’ Extravaganza
An alternative to the traditional pumpkin patch, the North Alabama Railroad Museum is combining the thrill of picking a pumpkin with the excitement of a train ride. Riders will be allowed to disembark from the train at Normal and enter a punkin’ patch. Children will be allowed to select a pumpkin (included in the price of their ticket) and take it back to Chase on the train and then home. There are four ride time available for 2021!
