Board our vintage train for a beautiful autumn ride through the scenic forests of Shelby County.

Search our pumpkin patch to find your perfect pumpkin!
Upgrade to a caboose ticket or locomotive ticket for a memorable experience and get an up close look at railroad operations!
Snacks and drinks are available for purchase at the Gift Shop and at the Pumpkin Patch for cash only.
Pumpkins can be purchased when you purchase your tickets online, the Calera Depot ticket window when you pick up your tickets, or on location at the Pumpkin Patch for cash only.
