All aboard the Coopersville and Marne Railway for a trip into the heart of Fall on the Famous Pumpkin Train.

We're not sure how many pumpkin patches you will see but the seasonal colors will be in bloom as you ride the rails between Coopersville and Marne, a pair or rural small towns northwest of Grand Rapids. The Famous Pumpkin Train crosses over an open deck girder bridge, four creeks and a road bridge, travelling through family-owned farms and fields. The Grand Pumpkin, Scarecrow and Little Crow will entertain passengers on board this Autumnal journey.

Part of the railroad's entertrainment series, the Famous Pumpkin Train will be running every Saturday and Sunday through October. Tickets are $20 adults, $18 children 2-12, 19 seniors 60+.
