LINCOLN, NH – After a single week of weekend operations following Labor Day on September 9 & 10, 2018, the Hobo Railroad resumes daily operations on Saturday, September 15, 2018 with the return of their annual Hobo Harvest Time Express fall celebration.
The Hobo Railroad’s annual Hobo Harvest Time Express Fall celebration operates daily September 15, through October 14, 2018. Referred to by many as “New Hampshire’s Classic Fall Foliage Experience”, the Railroad takes on an entirely new look for Fall with the addition of the Hobo Farm Stand which is filled with pumpkins for purchase and the Hobo Farm Yard which turns into a family-oriented playground with games like pumpkin bowling, ring toss, horse shoes, bean bag toss, sack races and corn hole, not to mention an impressive display of restored antique tractors provided by the Presby Transportation Museum in Whitefield, NH.
Trains will depart Hobo Junction Station at 11am and 1pm daily, with 3pm departures taking place on the following four Saturdays: September 22 & 29 and October 6 & 13, 2018. Guests aboard the one hour and twenty minute train rides will be treated to a variety of Fall-themed samples including warm apple cider as well pumpkin granola and apple spiced granola.
The Hobo Railroad’s popular “Cornstalk Critters” will once again be on display and available to pose with between 10:00am and 3:00pm each day. This year’s Cornstalk Critters were created by North Woodstock, NH Artisan Jackie Wilson exclusively for the Hobo Railroad. The theme for this year’s “Cornstalk Critter’s” will be “Scarecrows of the Small Screen – Celebrating iconic TV personalities through the years.”
Included in the mix of nine straw-filled characters will be “Mr. T” from the A Team; Laverne & Shirley from the TV show with the same name; “Mr. Spock” from Star Trek; “Gilligan” from Gilligan’s Island; “The Fonz” from the TV show Happy Days; “Batman & Robin” and “Fred Rodgers” from Mr. Rodger’s Neighborhood. All nine characters will be posed and dressed in such a way as they should all be easily recognizable.
Tickets for the Hobo Railroad’s Harvest Time Express Fall Celebration are $20 for adults and $15 for children 4-11, while ages 3 and under ride for free. The Hobo Railroad is located in Lincoln, NH, just off Exit 32 on I-93, left on Route 112, directly across from McDonalds. For more information, call (603) 745-2135 or visit www.HoboRR.com.
