Christmas Tree Train

We will see you next year!

Ride aboard the Christmas Tree Train to Leaman Place Grove where you can choose a pre-cut Frasier or Douglas Fir tree and have it delivered by steam on a flatcar back to the station.

We are currently offering two Christmas Tree Train departure times. Trains will depart at 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m for this exclusive train ride. Once at Leaman Place Grove, passengers will have approximately one hour to choose and purchase that special Christmas tree. Watch it being loaded on the flatcar and enjoy free refreshments. Professional photographers will be available to capture that special memory. You will then be returned to the station by to pick up your tree from the flatcar. Passengers aboard the Christmas Tree Train Train can expect to be returned to the East Strasburg Station two hours after departure. Friendly Strasburg Rail Road staff will assist you with loading your tree.  Back at the historic East Strasburg station, children will be treated to storybook readings of holiday classics aboard our heated Caboose (stationary) and visitors of all ages can enjoy a ride aboard the Tinsel Trolley, a self-propelled motor car.

The Christmas Tree Train runs in addition to the regularly scheduled Santa’s Paradise Express trains.  Seating is limited, so guests are encouraged to purchase tickets early.

Please note that the tree cost is an additional cost.  Christmas trees are priced individually.  However, the average cost of Christmas trees is approximately $40. Train operates rain or shine.
