The tricks are spook-tacular aboard the Upper Hudson River Railroad

NORTH CREEK The Upper Hudson River Railroad will be dressing up for a Halloween extravaganza on Saturday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 28. Children and their parents can enjoy a 2 p.m. Trick or Treat train on both Saturday and Sunday. Everyone is encouraged to come in costume to participate in the costume parade when the train stops at Riverside Station. Prizes will be given out to the best in several categories. Children will also trick or treat at locations in and around the station. With the Adirondack autumn colors still visible along the route, this ride will delight both children and adults. At 5 p.m. on Oct. 28 the North Creek Station will undergo an eerie transformation. Suddenly, formerly friendly looking engineers cast an ominous shadow as they board the train. Inside the cars something has changed but passengers will remain in the dark until the train begins its journey down the tracks. Legend has it that there is a haunted train wreck somewhere down the line. This is truly going to be a Fright Train. Passengers aboard this special Fright Train must be teenagers and older and it is not recommended to come in costume. Once the journey has begun passengers will move among the cars encountering the spooky Shanty, the haunted ghost car and the mourning car. Some of the passengers look suspect, like the manic clown and deadly Thomas. Only those who witness this spooky ride will be able to relate all the details and find out what really happened to those on the haunted train wreck. The Fright Train is an alcohol free event. Doughnuts and cider will be served along the way. For more information regarding either of these Halloween events, contact the Upper Hudson River Railroad at (518) 251-5334 or www.uhrr.com
