Choo choo! Join the Allentown and Auburn Railroad for scenic train rides with St. Nick himself. Throughout Nov. and Dec., the train will traverse the four miles of track, giving those on board a glimpse of stunning countryside views. Select train rides also include hot chocolate tastings. And for adults, don’t miss the holiday wine tasting train rides.

Revel in the holiday atmosphere on one of the Christmas Trains at the Strasburg Rail Road in Lancaster County!  Choose from the distinctive experiences offered by Santa’s Paradise Express, the Christmas Tree Train or The Night Before Christmas trains – plus enjoy a Christmas feast aboard select departure times. Trains are available Nov. 24 through Dec. 22. 

All aboard the Bellefonte Train! For one weekend only, The Bellefonte Train embarks on a journey to the North Pole to visit Santa and all his friends Dec. 15-17. Don’t miss out and buy your tickets for Santa Express before they sell out!  

Who’s that big jolly fellow on the train? Oh, that’s Santa Claus! Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway invites the whole family to Jim Thorpe for the enjoyable Santa Claus specials. Santa will be handing out small treats and taking holiday photos your family will remember for years to come! Spots are limited and run from Nov. 24 through Dec. 23.

Hear the sleigh bells ringing when you hop onboard the North Pole Express and Santa’s Steam Spectacular at New Hope & Ivyland Railroad. Santa and Mrs. Claus welcome you as you depart New Hope Station for a North Pole Express train ride through the historic Buck’s County countryside on the way to the North Pole. Enjoy warm cocoa and cookies while Santa listens to all your wishes this holiday season.
