Back for a second year, the the Grand Canyon Railway is tooting its Pumpkin Patch Train, which features a jaunt from the old depot in Williams, Ariz., to a “secret patch,” where kids have 30-45 minutes to pick out their prize gourd.

The train departs Saturdays and Sundays throughout October, leaving at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.  Rates are $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 2-15. There are no advance purchases. Tickets are sold at the depot on a first-come basis.  As part of the package, each child gets a pumpkin.

“The Pumpkin Patch Train went over so well last year that we brought this event back and even added a weekend and the haunted train car,” said general manager Bob Baker.

In addition, guests can enjoy a hay maze, crafts and face painting. For an additional charge, pumpkin pie, hot chocolate and caramel apples will be available.
