Santa’s Paradise Express
Ho, ho, ho! Santa’s aboard this classic steam train for a holiday ride to remember!
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.
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, unsealed envelope and we’ll make sure Santa mails a personal 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 at the North Pole alcove adjacent to the Railroad Store. 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!
