SANTA CLAUS EXPRESS

As of November 24, all Santa Claus Express trains are SOLD OUT!
However, there are a limited number of walk-up tickets available for each departure.

We suggest arriving at the station early as walk-up tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Thank you for continuing to make this our most popular event each year!

Why stand in line at the mall and wait to see Santa, when you can ride our train and have Santa come to you? The Jolly Old Elf rides the train and greets everyone on board, and gives all children a chocolate treat. Be sure to bring your camera and have Santa pose for pictures with your child during this 1½-hour round-trip to Ashland.

This event is powered by one of our antique steam locomotives.
