SRR_8099_RGB@72Sparkling skies, warmth from a potbelly stove, the aroma of freshly baked cookies, and magic in the air. Returning again this year, the popular Night Before Christmas Train runs on select Thursday and Friday evenings during the holiday season.  The Strasburg Rail Road will donate $5 for every adult ticket sold to the Clinic for Special Children.

SRR_8217_RGB@72This very unique and special train recreates the excitement and anticipation of Christmas Eve. A reader dressed in a Victorian nightshirt and cap will read Clement Clarke Moore’s classic poem, The Night Before Christmas, as the train rolls along. After the reading of the poem, passengers can enjoy a treat of milk and cookies. Children are also 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. In the spirit of the season, kids may come dressed in pajamas.

Passengers may bring old-fashioned storybooks to benefit the Clinic for Special Children (please, no fantasy books). Look for the red donation receptacles on our mall.

Special thanks to Turkey Hill Dairy and Hershey Farm Restaurant & Inn, in-kind sponsors for the 2015 Night Before Christmas Train.
