Celebrate fall aboard LM&M’s Pumpkin Express!
This Warren County gem is reopening with a glorious fall excursion. LM&M’s Pumpkin Express runs two weekends only: October 17-18 and 24-25.
Cars will have seasonal scarecrow hosts who will be making seasonal balloon pumpkins during the hour-long ride. Upon returning to the station, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Harvest car, pose for some fall-themed photo opps and pick up a pie pumpkin (guests will be directed one car at a time to adhere to social distancing requirements). As always, families can expect lots of fun and family memories aboard LM&M Railroad.
The Pumpkin Express is LM&M’s first excursion since the March. In reopening, LM&M Railroad has shaped its policies and protocols to provide the best and safest experience for guests. LM&M’s COVID-19 policies and protocol include:
Pre-purchased tickets/advance reservations. Tickets and pass reservations are only available through lebanonrr.com or by calling 513-933-8022.
Guest check-in will be conducted by Team Members at our main boarding area. (The gift shop and ticket office will remain closed.)
All guests will undergo a temperature check before boarding the train. (Similarly, Team Members will undergo a temperature check and Health Assessment before the start of their shifts.) Any guest or Team Member with a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or greater will be denied entry.
Face masks are required for all guests two years old and older, as well as all Team Members.
Train capacity will be reduced, and time between train departures extended to allow time to thoroughly sanitize the train.
