Heritage Railway runs ghost train to Kamloops

The Kamloops Heritage Railway will run its annual “ghost train” this month, a 1 1/4-hour evening excursion that includes spooky happenings on board. “As we travel into the darkness, a bride-to-be cries out, the ghouls cringe and a mysterious widow hides,” the railway says. A strange rider who appears on horseback near the train also figures in the action.

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — The Kamloops Heritage Railway will run its annual “ghost train” this month, a 1 1/4-hour evening excursion that includes spooky happenings on board.

“As we travel into the darkness, a bride-to-be cries out, the ghouls cringe and a mysterious widow hides,” the railway says. A strange rider who appears on horseback near the train also figures in the action.

Passengers ride north about 5 1/2 kilometres from the former CN station in downtown Kamloops to the edge of town and back in open-air rail cars drawn by a steam engine built in 1912. Costumed actors play the various parts in the drama.

Some ghostly business in an apparent cemetery beside the station platform rounds out the evening.

Adult fares are $20 (less for children and seniors). There are excursions on Oct. 16, 17, 23 and 30.
