Thousands Witness the Debut of Shorewood’s Ghost Train

Shorewood Ghost Train

North Shore Bank sponsored the debut of Shorewood’s “Ghost Train” on Halloween night. Over 2,500 people witnessed the Ghost Train’s inaugural run, which is a public art lighting project that re-creates the round-trip route of the Twin Cities 400 train, once described as the fastest passenger train in the world, passing through Shorewood as it traveled a mile per minute between Chicago and St. Paul, Minnesota.
 
The Ghost Train includes LED lights programmed for a 30-second light show and speakers produce sounds “reminiscent of a train” twice each evening at 8:00pm and 8:30pm to replicate the old train’s schedule. Now, the public can experience The Ghost Train nightly for themselves in Shorewood.
 
As part of the festivities, the bank ran the costume contest after the Ghost Train’s first run at a party at Metro Market, where attendees could also hear about the Ghost Train from the artist who designed it, and learn about local train history from the Shorewood Historical Society. The contest includes prizes for best dressed in 30s, 40s, and 50s period attire and train-themed costumes. View event pictures
