Check out our calendar for scheduled run days, however; call us at 206-880-1419 for information on what is happening at the track. For example if the weather is not good, we may need to quit running on a regular scheduled run day. If you do not get an answer, please try again in about five minutes as I may be the engineer on one of our trains and it is almost impossible to safely answer in this case. 

2018 Ghost Train

This year's annual Ghost Train run will be the evening of October 27th between the hours of 5pm and 9pm. For more information click on: Facebook link . Note that all proceeds from the train rides go to benefit the Kitsap Foster Association of Kitsap County.

Copied from their website: "The annual Ghost Train Run is Kitsap Foster Care Association's biggest fundraiser of the year! Presented with the generous support of Kitsap Live Steamers and other community partners. The money raised from the Ghost Train will fund all our activities, such as Mariners tickets, holiday gifts, backpacks full of school supplies and monthly dinner support group meetings!"


 Come and ride the train through the spooky park! Thanks for supporting Kitsap kids in care!. We’ll also have a bunch of community partners to play games with your kiddos and trick or treating available in the park! Thanks for supporting Kitsap kids in care!


Note: To purchase pre-sale of tickets go on line click on: 

For your information the train ride is about 10 to 15 minutes long. Children and adults of all ages are welcome to take a ride and experience the excitement of the train ride and displays along to track. Very young children need to ride in front of a responsible adult. Be sure and listen to the message that is given prior to departing the depot!
