York-Durham Heritage Railway


Family Halloween Train Rides

Each year, the Greater Toronto Area’s only tourist railway runs its very popular family Halloween Trains. On board the decorated trains are ghosts, ghouls, and other entertainment for young and old alike. Trains operate from the Uxbridge and Stouffville stations and have lots of Halloween activities.

All children (aged up to 12 years) dressed in their best and scariest Halloween costumes will travel for $1 (Max 2 children per adult). Fares for adults, seniors and teenagers are the same as on our regular trains. All children will receive a loot bag upon departing the train.

Snack service is available on-board the trains.
