Ride on the Haunted Ghost Train
of Old Ely . . . if You Dare!

Friday and Saturday, October 26 and 27

Take a ride on the Ghost Train to experience a haunted evening filled with ghosts, goblins, demons, and all things eerie near Ely this fall.

It happens each October in this 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 seem to be legions of demons, ghosts, and goblins invading the otherwise peaceful setting here on those special October nights.

It has become our job to predict exactly when there might be good sightings of all the mysterious happenings around Ely. The schedule below 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 original mainline up toward the old Ruth Mine through the old scary tunnels. Is it scary? Yes, a little. Is it fun? Yes, it is. Is it a bit corny? Seriously? Of course. As they say, come to have fun with friends and family, or don't come at all. Costumes are warmly encouraged.

You may be asking exactly how all of these eerie and mysterious scenes occur right alongside the mainline. You might also ask why almost 100 volunteers from the communities surrounding Ely disappear around the same time as the train trip. You might also ask why many of the ghosts and goblins possessing the rail line look amazingly like those local citizens. Could there be a coincidence? You can decide for yourself. We can't give away the ghosts' and demons' secrets. All we can say is that however it is done, here's a special thanks to the great, heartfelt community support that this event enjoys each year. We hope you enjoy the fruits of their labors as much as the community enjoys putting it on.

So, are you brave enough to get on the Haunted Ghost Train of Old Ely this year? Reservations are highly recommended. These trains almost always "sell out", so to speak. Who wants to be left behind at the depot on a night like this?
