All aboard for Strasburg Rail Road’s Night Before Christmas Train! Passengers aboard this train enjoy the childlike anticipation of Christmas Eve, recall the old-fashioned nostalgia of Christmas past, and delight in the magic of an authentic steam train during the holidays.

Returning again this year, the popular Night Before Christmas Train runs on select evenings throughout the holiday season. 


This very unique and special train recreates the excitement and anticipation of Christmas Eve. 

Parents, please note: This ride does NOT feature Santa. If you’re looking for a train ride during which Santa visits with each family and pauses for a photo, please consider our Santa’s Paradise Express.
