THIS Halloween ghosts and ghouls will be haunting the East Lancashire Railway to give monsters big and small a journey they’ll never forget.

Organisers say those brave enough to climb aboard at the heritage railway in Bury will be in for a frightfully fun steam train trip through 12 miles of the eerie Irwell valley with a host of freaky phantoms and ghastly ghouls.

A spokesman added: "Show off your spookiest fancy dress and enjoy monstrous munch at the station buffet. 

"Every little monster receives a free goody bag full of tricks and treats and you can even prepare for the scare with a Creepy Craft Workshop taking place at the nearby Bury Transport Museum."

Warrington Guardian:

Entry is free to the museum with a valid Halloween Ghost Train ticket.

But remember - the later the time, the scarier the train.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. 

To book your place visit

Tickets are priced at £15.50 for adults and £9.50 for children.

The East Lancashire Railway’s Halloween Ghost Trains will be at Bury Bolton Street Station on the 26th, 27th and 31st October at 5.30pm, 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
