NorthPoleTrains.com highlights Christmas train rides

Seasonal website features holiday events at railroads across the U.S. and Canada

A unique holiday website is linking families and railfans with hundreds of Christmastime train rides. For the fifth year, NorthPoleTrains.com has posted the internet's most complete guide to holiday theme train ride events. This year's listings contain descriptions and operating dates for hundreds of train rides at scenic and heritage railroads in the U.S., Canada, and beyond.

For many folks, Christmastime is synonymous with rail travel. A family reunion at the station and a toy train under the tree are happy holiday traditions. Christmas train ride events celebrate those traditions and are popular with tiny tots and sentimental seniors alike. Themes include tree farm runs, holiday dinner trains, Christmas shopping excursions, Polar Express® trips and more. 

Many of the Christmas trains featured on NorthPoleTrains.com are brightly decorated for the holiday season. Some roll though twinkling holiday lights displays and many continue all the way to the "North Pole." Christmas caroling and story telling are almost always included and hot cocoa and cookies are often served. Personal visits with "Santa Claus" frequently include a special gift.

NorthPoleTrains.com is the only website dedicated to providing a multi-regional guide to Christmas themed train ride events. Railroads featuring holiday trains are grouped by regions including New England, Mid Atlantic, Southern, Midwest, Southwest and Western States. A separate Canada section lists Christmas trains by Province.

Individual railroad listings include station locations and holiday season excursion dates. Christmas train listings are published at no cost to the railroad. NorthPoleTrains.com neither solicits nor accepts payment for its listings.
