FISH CAMP — Something spooktacular is happening this weekend, and visitors to Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad will want to know: locomotive #15 has been taken over by Halloween spirits.
Ghosts in the know say the eerie train will be rolling down the rails this on Saturday, Oct. 27. Children are encouraged to wear costumes and go trick-or-treating at the stores and museum on site.
Departures are available at 9:30, 11:00, and 12:30. Seating is limited, and online reservations are recommended to avoid disappointment.
Just 15 minutes from Oakhurst and 4 miles south of the entrance to Yosemite National Park, the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad offers excursions with authentic, historic Shay locomotives and Jenny Railcars. Enjoy a narrated 4-mile round trip into the National Forest as the conductor shares tales of long ago, when the Madera Sugar Pine Lumber Company still operated along the same roadbed.
The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad has the largest narrow gauge Shay locomotive ever built. The Number 10 and the Number 15 were the first and last Shay locomotives to leave the West Side Lumber Company’s property, and are still in service for all to enjoy.
