​Halloween Night Run 2018

The spookiest train rides around, this year at the Hamilton Model Engineers 2018 'Halloween' Night Run.

Saturday the 3th of November will bring out trains from all around the country running from 10:30am - 3pm as per usual, weather permitting. And from 6:30pm, things will get scary in the dark, with trains running until 9pm weather permitting.

Sunday the 4th will be a normal, not-so-spooky running day from 10:30am - 3pm weather permitting.
Please note: We will stop running from 12pm - 12:30pm on Saturday and Sunday for our volunteer's lunch break. This will not affect our Night Run.
We hope to see you at our most frightening event yet!
