We are excited to couple our historic Pullman cars to the locomotive for a journey to our Pumpkin Patch on Rails. Enjoy the beautiful fall colors of the forest as you are serenaded by the music of Ben the Banjo Player. We will be travelling in authentic Pullman passenger cars from Wickersham Station through the tunnel and on to Mirror Lake. Once we arrive, you will have the opportunity to ride an antique handcar prior to picking out a pumpkin to take home. After you pick out your pumpkin, sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey back to Wickersham. All ages are welcome to relive memories and create new ones on this nostalgic ride through history. You will be riding on train cars that have been in use for more than 100 years! Throughout your visit, you will see many pieces of railroad history, including our antique steam engine, number 1070. Lake Whatcom Railway is dedicated to the preservation of railway history, and funds collected go towards the restoration and preservation of this American legacy. The Lake Whatcom Railway Pumpkin Patch on Rails excursion departs from Wickersham Station. Four departures are available; 9 am, 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to departure so that you may explore the century of railway history on site, and receive your ticket prior to boarding. Snacks and water will be available for purchase onboard the train.

****Please note - This ride travels a shorter distance than in previous years, and the ticket prices have been reduced to reflect that****
