Spooktacular trip on track for Halloween

Trick or treaters of all ages are stepping aboard the Halloween Express steam train for a night time trip through Brisbane on 31 October, presented by The Workshops Rail Museum.

Ghosts, witches and superheroes have two departure times of 5:10pm and 6:45pm for the hour long steam train ride through Brisbane, departing and returning to Roma Street station.

Queensland Museum Network CEO Professor Suzanne Miller said the train trip is a fun way to present a heritage and cultural experience for the whole family.

“With Halloween celebrated by numerous cultures it’s wonderful to be able to team it with one of Queensland’s fine heritage steam trains for a unique experience.

“Halloween’s growing popularity in Australia is evident as the response for the trip last year was overwhelming, and it was great to see so many costumes worn by children and adults alike,” said Prof. Miller.

“The Workshops Rail Museum is renowned for providing heritage and cultural experiences, and the trip is a fun way to introduce a hint of rail history to younger generations.”

Bookings are essential and passengers are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment. Purchase tickets online at theworkshops.qm.qld.gov.au or call QTIX on 136 246.

Halloween Express ticket prices are $91 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children), $28 for adults, $19 for children (3 –15), free for children under three, $25 for concessions.

“The trip is a great way to start the night of Halloween celebrations with friends or a social club activity,” said Prof. Miller.

“There’s a magical buzz aboard a steam train travelling at night, with the city lit up and everyone in fancy dress, it gives you a sense of community.”
