This special runs Wednesdays through Fridays in August (weekends do not apply), and ends on Friday, August 30. Adult Coach tickets are just $15 for an all day pass. Ticket is valid for one round trip ticket, and passengers seated in coach may de-board the train at various locations and re-board at a later time based on a round trip.
