Murder Mystery Train: A Not-To-Be-Missed Evening of Entertainment

Sep 06, 2016 02:51PM ● By Kirsten Gehlbach
“LOCO-MOTIVE FOR MURDER” will again be a part of the Glory Days Festival on September 10 in White River Junction. The train will leave the station and travel along the Connecticut River from 5:30 to 8:30pm. The evening will include an interactive theatrical experience that will remain a secret until the Murder Mystery leaves the platform. No leaks to the press on this event!

RJ Crowley Productions, based in Hartland, produces this fun-filled, full-scale event in the form of a murder mystery. RJ promises that characters, comedy, and corpses will abound for the second year at the Glory Days Festival. From last year’s reports and the number of likes on Facebook and tickets already reserved for the event this year, this is a not-to-be-missed night of entertainment, fun, and, of course, mystery!

The mystery begins on the platform of the station while guests enjoy food and drinks. Once the guests board the train, the mystery deepens as the body count rises. The killer is revealed when the train arrives back in White River Junction. Along the way, there will be great views, good food, a cash bar, and a few surprises.

Tickets are limited at $65 and can be reserved online at
