“Join Santa,” the Colebrookdale Railroad announcement proclaimed, for its Santa’s Polar Bear Express and ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas train rides. The 60-minute excursions feature restored and decorated Edwardian train cars, service of sweet hot chocolate and cookies, and of course, jolly old Saint Nicholas.
Santa Claus himself reads the story ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas to all passengers on board several daytime or evening train rides, it added. Train excursions start at 10 a.m. and run through 8 p.m. on selected dates throughout the season. Tickets are available for online purchase.
The railroad suggests riders arrive early for their excursions, and visit the snack bar located in the train yard for a bite to eat before boarding. Among its offerings are warm soft pretzels, freshly popped popcorn, and other items … along with a complimentary hot chocolate, served in a reusable Colebrookdale Railroad souvenir cup, to go.
