The Essex Fright Train kicked off last weekend, with brave residents hopping onboard the terrifying hour-long ride. Once on board, travelers listened to a gory ghost story for the anniversary of the 1925 train wreck, hoping no angry spirits had come along for the ride. Tickets are still available for Friday, Oct. 28 to Monday, Oct. 31 evening for both 6:30 and 8 p.m.; the event is recommended for ages eight and older. Tickets are available at the location, but ordering tickets in advance is encouraged; call 860-767-0103 or visit www.essexsteamtrain.com for tickets.
