The Polar Express™ & Santa Steam Trains

The Chehalis-Centralia Railroad and Museum present The Polar Express™ train ride and the short-hop Santa Steam Train. The Polar Express™ train rides feature the reading of the popular book "The Polar Express" during the trek to the North Pole, where Santa is picked up for the return trip. Each child will be given the first gift by Santa on the way back to the depot. Children are encouraged to come in their pajamas like in the movie. There will be cocoa and cookies provided on board, as well as singing and other entertainment. The train ride is approximately 1 hour. The Santa Steam Train is approximately 30 minutes long, with Santa visiting everybody during the train ride. Photo opportunities are available before and after each trip. The trian cars are not heated so dress appropriately

Ride dates will be available as November draws nearer.
