Watch out for the guy with the chainsaw while riding the Haunted Ghost Train.

As darkness falls over the lonely mining town of Ely, Nev., the restless spirits of the old west haunt the Nevada Northern Railway on the weekly Haunted Ghost Train.

On every Saturday in October and Friday October 27, this fun train ride with ghost stories, track-side vignettes and spooky spirits is a fun outing for the whole family.

From headless horsemen and hitchhiking ghosts to UFOs and haunted tunnels, the ghost train is sure to keep passengers on their toes.

A rolling haunted house, the Haunted Ghost Train is made possible by nearly 100 volunteers from the local communities.

Passengers are encouraged to dress in costumes. Prices $39 for adults; $20 for kids 4-12. Kids 3 and under ride for free.
