(Wednesday, May 16, 2018) Dennison, Ohio – Fall train rides will now be offered in October at the Dennison Railroad Depot.

Director Wendy Zucal says the fall train ride route will head the opposite direction than the Polar Express Route.

“Well, we’re excited to offer two weekends of fall train rides with different themes. There will be 16 trips over Saturday and Sunday. We have done fall train rides in the past. We worked with the Dennison-Wyoming Railroad on a track owned by the State of Ohio so this just allows logistics to work things out. We just thought it would be a good time to bring fall train rides back.”

The fall trips will be an hour long; a half hour out and a half hour back, through the fall foliage.

“The train rides will also have a variety of themes. There’s a Storybook Express which is based on traditional fairy tales, similar in theory to Polar Express where kids are encouraged to dress up, they’ll hear stories, see characters, and have a fun stack. It’s a very nice family ride.”

Zucal also noted there would be a Halloween ride where kids will receive a pumpkin and a Sweetest Day train ride that includes a chocolate and cheese theme.
