In addition to the "Pumpkin Festival" activities at the Museum, the “Pumpkinliner” trains stop at the Hanover Township Central Park where you can enjoy the “ALL ABOARD FOR WELLNESS” events and activities, all included with the purchase of your “Pumpkinliner” ticket. Please visit our Health & Wellness page for full details.

The train feature a unique collection of restored, Vintage Cabooses from Historic Rail Lines that once served New Jersey and the Metropolitan area.

Passengers can climb aboard the Caboose of their choice and experience an old-fashioned, pleasant way of spending a Sunday afternoon with the Family. While swaying to the motion of the old cars you can listen to the nostalgic “clickety-clack” sounds the wheels make as they clatter over the rail joints. The 45-minute round trip allows visitors to view the train and countryside as only Railroaders did for over 100 years.
