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 and greet the 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.

And don’t miss Mrs. Claus who will be available at the Station from 12-4 PM to help children finalize their letters to Santa! Bring a self-addressed stamped envelope and we’ll make sure Santa mails a reply to each boy and girl on his list.

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. All this and more is included with your Santa’s Paradise Express ticket!
