You still have a few days to take advantage of the Hobo Railroad’s popular Hobo Harvest Time Express event for 2019! It will be ending on Monday, October 14th at the Hobo Railroad in Lincoln. The one hour and twenty minute Fall foliage train rides along the Pemigewasset River and will depart daily at 11:00am and 1:00pm during this month-long autumn celebration. Those riding the train will be treated to complimentary samples of seasonal items and specialty products while they relax in restored vintage coaches from the 1920’s and 1950’s.
One of the many highlights of the month-long event at the Hobo Railroad will be the themed, life-sized Scarecrows which are referred to as “Cornstalk Critters”. This year’s theme, “Superheroes”, will feature nine characters including Batman & Robin, Superman, Spiderman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Black Panther, the Flash & Captain America. Visitors will easily recognize each of the various Superheroes through their colorful costumes and are encouraged to pose with them for photos.
The backdrop for the celebration will be reminiscent of days gone by consisting of the Hobo Farm Yard with a variety of outdoor games the entire family will enjoy. Games include horseshoes, croquette, giant Jenga, bean bag toss, ring toss, corn hole, giant checkers and much more. Also available will be a display of antique tractors provided by the Presby Transportation Museum in Whitefield, NH. The Hobo Junction Station and Farm Yard will be open daily from 10:00am to 3:00pm.
