The Ghost Train Rides Again!
It's that time of year for ghosts and goblins 

It happens every October in the remote mountain town of Ely, Nevada. The days grow shorter and the nights take on a definite chill. They say the Ghost Train of Old Ely comes "alive" in a whole different way. Some say that there seems to be legions of demons, ghosts, and goblins invading the otherwise peaceful setting here on those special October nights. 

It has become the job of Nevada Northern Railway's to predict exactly when there might be good sightings of all the mysterious happenings around Ely. The train schedule has been carefully researched to provide the very best viewing of UFOs, Headless Horsemen, Hitchhiking Ghosts, Haunted Tunnels, Creepy Campfires, and Ghastly Ghost towns right alongside Nevada Northern Railway's mainline up to the old Ruth Mine. We dare to send a trainload of brave souls out on several weekend nights in October to witness it for themselves.

Visit Lattin Farms for an
"A-Mazing" Halloween
It's that time of year to get lost

A family that gets lost together, stays together (or something like that). Lattin Farms is home to the Nevada Maze, a maze built in the middle of a three-acre corn field. Families love working together to find their way through this very complex maze. All ages are welcome, and in October the maze is open on Fridays 5pm to 8pm, and Saturday from 10am to 8pm. Adult admission is $7, and children are $5. For more information, visit HalloweenAttractions.com or call 775-867-3750.

Pony Express Territory
in the News

Pony Express Territory has been in the news a lot lately! A recent story in The Columbus Dispatch of Ohio, highlights all the places to see along Highway 50. The writer describes all the friendly people he met along his autumn journey. It's only fitting that the story ends at Austin's Owl Club! And speaking of Austin, the town was recently featured on KTVN Channel 2's "Nevada Backroads!" Once again, this friendly town in the middle of Nevada has made the news. With so many interesting and historic stories, it's no wonder that Austin is a real taste of the True West!
