The Arkansas & Missouri Railroad will host two nights of tours and trick-or-treating at its depot area in downtown Springdale.

The Ghost Train Tour and Kiddie Caboose event includes a stationary, Halloween-themed guided tour of decorated train cars, followed by trick-or-treating on the train caboose.

Events are planned from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20 and from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Entry fee is $10 for adults and $5 for children. Proceeds will benefit the JRM Transportation Museum.
