Train Rides with Santa
A Christmas tradition since 1959, Strasburg Rail Road welcomes a very special visitor every November and December. That’s right, Santa himself will climb aboard the historic steam train to greet families as they travel down the tracks to Paradise, PA and back. As a special treat, children ages 11 and under will receive a gift from Santa and his helper during this nostalgic 45-minute steam train ride.
Additionally, visitors of all ages will be charmed as they enjoy a ride aboard the Tinsel Trolley (a self-propelled motor car) and enjoy storybook readings of holiday classics aboard our heated stationary caboose. Weather-permitting, rides aboard our Pint-sized Pufferbelly and the Cranky Cars will be available too. All this is included with your Santa’s Paradise Express ticket!
As COVID cases are on the rise, the Strasburg Rail Road wishes to ensure the health and safety of our Team Members and Guests.
– Our Team Members are wearing face masks to help protect themselves, our Guests, and co-workers.
– We ask that unvaccinated Guests wear a face mask for the duration of their visit to the Strasburg Rail Road. Guests who are fully vaccinated are urged to wear a face mask when aboard the train or when visiting our retail shops and Café 1832.
– Face masks may be removed when eating or drinking.
Thank you for helping to keep the Strasburg Rail Road a safe place to visit!
