Get ready for Hallowe’en with our ‘Steam ‘n’ Scream’ event on Saturday 28th October.  Join the ‘Spooky Special’ at either Cheltenham Racecourse or Toddington Station then get in the mood by taking part in a special Hallowe’en quiz on the train, but hold on tight!  - you never know what might happen as you make your way through the haunted Greet Tunnel on the approach to Winchcombe from Cheltenham.

Winchcombe Station is the focus for this spooktastic  event. You will have the chance to meet the ‘Wicked Witch of Winchcombe’  and join in lots o ‘spooky’ activities that will be taking place around the station.  Hear the ghost train rushing through the station as you wait in the Haunted Waiting Room; become a ghostbuster as you take part in our special ghost hunt around the platforms or have fun with the Hallowe’en activities in the ‘Imaginarium’. Remember, normal ticket prices apply.

Why not come dressed for the occasion.  Wear your scariest costume and you will have the chance to win a prize for the best Hallowe’en costume on each train.
