Railtown 1897 is preparing for “Trains, Tracks & Terror!” next weekend. The new event is described as a scary Halloween drive-thru where cars follow a pre-planned route through the Railtown 1897 property. Drivers will be guided to go beyond the gates, along the side of the historic Roundhouse, past the turntable where the Locomotive will be steamed up, and ‘spooked’ out, with a skeleton crew and scary scenes will be projected through windows and doorways. The drive will go to the tri-dam machine shop that is not normally available for public viewing. Along the way, guests will experience a variety of scary yet entertaining vignettes while listening to a spooky audio broadcast through FM car radios.
