Event Details

The Pumpkin Train is one of our most popular trains. Take a fun-filled ride through the crisp rural landscape while enjoying a mix of fall colors! Trains leave the depot in North Judson, Indiana, and take passengers on a leisurely journey. Once again this year, we are offering two unique experiences for our Pumpkin Trains.

Diesel Pumpkin Trains

Our diesel-powered Pumpkin Trains take passengers on a 45-minute, 10-mile round-trip journey from North Judson to English Lake where the train crosses the beautiful Kankakee River before returning to town. We’ll drop you off at our pumpkin patch where you can choose the perfect pumpkin for carving!

Steam Pumpkin Trains

Our steam-powered Pumpkin Trains feature the amazing Bock Lumber Company no. 1 steam locomotive. This train leaves the depot in North Judson and takes passengers on a shorter 20-25 minute, 2.8-mile round-trip excursion. We’ll drop you off at our pumpkin patch where you can choose the perfect pumpkin for carving!

Organizer

Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum

The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum has been preserving railroad history in northwest Indiana since 1988 and has slowly evolved into the premier tourist destination in Starke County. HVRM started with little more than a single stub of track, an old steam locomotive and the dream of creating a working railroad museum that everyone can enjoy.
