The ghost of a railway museum in Quebec | So Good News

I have Chris de Burgh in mind, who I assume is dating me. In the song Spanish Train, God and the devil compete for souls carried on a train that runs between Guadalquivir and old Seville. The devil cheats and the game goes from poker to chess. They are still playing.

Although poker is not on the itinerary, there are plenty of other activities and “gentle thrills” for young souls at Exporail in the lead up to Halloween.

Visitors can take a haunted train ride and take part in spooky workshops at the train museum until Sunday 30 October.

Tiptoeing around railway ghosts and skeletal passengers, under spiders and bats, guests will encounter “interesting characters” inside some of the vehicles.

Exporail has the largest collection of railway equipment in Canada, much of which can be climbed aboard and explored inside and out.
