You know what's cooler than taking the family to pick your own pumpkins? Riding a legit Halloween-themed train to go pick your pumpkins, which is exactly what you can do for two days only at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union, IL this October.

I don't know about your kids, but my girls would be ALL over this and would think it's the coolest thing ever.

Illinois Railway Museum's 'Pumpkin Train' is happening October 26 and 27 and will give your family a change to;

Enjoy a ride to our pumpkin patch aboard Halloween-themed electric interurban trains. While at the patch, ask our farm hands to help you find the perfect pumpkin, and pose for pictures in our various colorful, life size cutouts, as well as an antique farm tractor and hay wagon.

Kids are encouraged to come in costume to ride the Pumpkin Train, so I'm guessing some treats will be in store too. For Pumpkin Train admission prices and hours of operations, click here.
