It may still be a summer-kind of heat out there, but officially, it's now Fall. Slowly the leaves are turning to their beautiful colors, and kids are beginning to think Halloween. So, that must mean it's time for the Coopersville and Marne Railway's Famous Pumpkin Train.

The train will start chugging away Saturday’s: Sept. 30, Oct. 7, and 14 at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Saturday’s: Oct., 21 and 28 at 11 am, 1:30 p.m. & 3:30 p.m. Sunday’s: Oct 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 at 1:00 p.m. & 3:00 p.m.

The Famous Pumpkin and her cast of delightful musical characters will “enterTRAIN” you  during the 90-minute ride through family owned farms and fields. During the journey the costumed characters will sing, dance, and entertain the kiddos. All of the vintage train cars are decorated for the season. Some cars are almost 100 years old. Each railcar is heated and has a restroom.
