For that special Currier and Ives Christmas experience, take a ride aboard Strasburg Rail Road’s Christmas Tree Train! Travel by authentic steam train to Leaman Place Grove where you can choose a pre-cut tree and have it delivered back to the station.

Once at Leaman Place Grove, passengers will have approximately one hour to choose and purchase that special Christmas tree. We’ll bale it and you can watch it being loaded on our heritage freight car while enjoying a roaring campfire. For those guests riding on the special evening tree trains, the grove will be lit with old-fashioned, Edison-style lighting to illuminate the trees.

You and your tree will then be returned to the station where friendly Strasburg Rail Road staff will assist you with loading your tree onto/into your vehicle. Passengers aboard the Christmas Tree Train can expect to be returned to the East Strasburg Station one-and-a-half hours after departure. 

The Christmas Tree Train runs independently of the regularly scheduled Santa’s Paradise Express and Night Before Christmas trains. Santa is not aboard the Christmas Tree Train. Seating is limited, so guests are encouraged to secure their tickets early.

Cash and credit cards are accepted at Leaman Place Grove. Back at the Station, our Gift Shops have a variety of keepsake ornaments to purchase as a special memory of your Christmas Tree Train experience.

Trains operate rain or shine.
