Located in the small town of Silverhill Alabama, Wales West is an RV resort, campground, and railroad theme park. The park operates two trains. One is a narrow gauge train that has 2 feet between the tracks. The other is a grand-scale train with 7.5 feet between the tracks. Both accommodate adults and children.

These trains operate almost every day, but their busiest times are during their seasonal trips. Each year they conduct four different themed trains including the Cottontail Express during the spring, the Summer Fun Express during late spring and throughout the summer, the Pumpkin Patch Express for the fall, and the Arctic Express during the winter. You can also host birthday parties, weddings, and reunions at this location year-round.

The Pumpkin Patch Express and Scary Night Trains are currently running now through the end of October. You can choose the non-scary train which takes the same path through the woods to the train station, but without the monsters and ghouls that the scary train offers. The non-scary train starts at 4:20 and ends when the scary train starts at 7:20.

The scary train is similar to a haunted forest. As the train goes through the trees, you will see many different scenes set up to frighten even the bravest in your group. As the train rolls through, you will be confronted by werewolves, apes, and many of your favorite horror movie characters. These characters approach from either side of the open-air train car, so be on the lookout for your favorite!

Once you arrive at the train station, you can choose a pumpkin to decorate. If you are a fan of haunted mazes, one is offered with the scary train ride option. While at the train station, you can check out their impressive model railroad feature and take pictures with their Wales West photo props. After you arrive at the train depot and the ride is over, you are welcome to a complimentary cookie and juice.
