For my weekly photos this week I thought I’d share an early glimpse of our Halloween fun. The Ghost train was just a small part of an action packed day of Halloween activities on the farm; please pop back and check out Country Kids this Saturday where I will share all the fun from the day. For now I’m just sharing a taster from the Ghost train at dusk. Our railway tunnel really does lend itself to a little pimping up for special occasions and Halloween is one of my favourites. It was full of home made crafts combined with shop bought scary beasts with sounds and lights to give a thrill for children young and old.
I crouched in the tunnel waiting for the train to appear
Train driver Guy drew to a halt and I handed out my spooky treats amidst the Halloween sounds and sights
The faces on the children were a picture as they took in the ambiance of the tunnel
Guy drove them safely back to the station and waiting parents where more children were queuing for a turn. It took at least half an hour to make sure everyone enjoyed a spooky ride.
I mounted the Go Pro on the engine next to Guy to give a child’s eye view of the fun aboard the train:
Our next festive makeover will be Christmas. Do come and join us and ride on our very own Santa Express each night with a visit from the man himself on Christmas Eve, We still have 3 properties remaining and a great 10 days for the price if 7 offer.
