Ready to get into the spooky Halloween spirit, with a little history thrown in?

California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to present lantern-lit Tales of the Roundhouse - haunted tours and train rides on two special evenings.

Led by engaging and entertaining guides, Tales of the Roundhouse guests will hear real life-and-death tales of historical railroad workers and passengers who lost their lives in ghastly accidents, gruesome train wrecks and sometimes by cold-blooded murder.

First introduced in 2016, Tales of the Roundhouse will include a tour of the historic park after dark while listening to intriguing, railroad-related ghost stories. Evening visitors will also enjoy going behind-the-scenes with special access to the historic roundhouse, machine shop and blacksmith shop.

Guests will also have the chance for a nighttime steam train ride behind the famous Sierra No. 3 "Movie Star" locomotive while being accompanied by lingering spirits - who some say still haunt the grounds - and hearing how they came to their grisly and untimely ends.

Limited space is available and advance tickets are recommended. Due to the nature of the tour content, Tales of the Roundhouse is not recommended for guests under 12 years of age.
