Spooky Events At the Railway!

29 October - 31 October
There's something strange happening at the Downpatrick & County Down Railway this Halloween. With ghosts on the platforms and ghouls on the train, it can only be the return of the Phantom Flyer for the railway's Halloween Ghost Trains.
As well as travelling on a ghostly steam train, children who dare to alight at the Forbidden Platform, as well as any brave grown-ups, will be granted an audience with the Great Wizard in his own haunted Grotto train.
If those who dare to enter Merlin's domain pass his tests, then the children will receive a mystical gift.

To add a really scary touch visitors could turn evil with some ghoulish face painting as well!

So are you brave enough to visit a Viking Graveyard on Halloween night? Well, the train will be stopping at the grave of King Magnus Barefoot on its travels and be warned as ghoulish things rise out of the ground before your eyes!
The Phantom Flyer will be dearly departing on Halloween weekend - Saturday 29, Sunday 30 and Monday 31 October at the witching hour from 4pm-7pm for all three knights (or nights). Refreshments will be served on-board a buffet carriage at the Loop Platform, and car parking is free.
On Halloween night there will also be a fireworks display after the last train in Downpatrick Town Centre just down from the station.

Tickets are available on the day at Downpatrick Station only and cost £8.50 for ghoulish grownups and little monsters (children aged 4-15), £5.50 for tiny terrors (children aged 0-3) and spooky seniors (childrens' ticket includes visit to Merlin, swag bag as well as train fare).
Don't forget that this is an outdoor event, so please remember to wrap up well.

And also keep an eye out for Santa's visit to the railway this December - tickets are available online now at the railways website and Facebook page.
