NEW FOR 2021

Join Santa Claus on this special mid-summer ride to Hanover Junction! Santa will be stopping by the Northern Central Railway during his summer vacation to give you a preview of our holiday trains. If you haven’t ridden on one of our Christmas rides, this is a great opportunity to learn why these rides are our most popular.

Tickets: $28 Adult; $15 Child (age 3-12); $5 Toddler (in lap)

The cars are pulled and pushed by our vintage diesel locomotive.

This excursion is 2 ½ hours.

Tickets will be printed and available for pick up at the ticket booth on the day of the excursion.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to departure.

Before you join us, please reference our new protocols!
