This train ride was so relaxing! And the coach train car was breathtakingly beautiful. People were friendly and unhurried.

Staff was friendly and we had a nice visit on the adults only wine and cheese. The apprentice conductor/brakeman was quite conversive and enjoyable!! The weather was REGRETABLE and the wait at the ticket window in the rain was reminiscent of the old P.R.R.

Thanks for your question! Santa visits with families aboard the train. The train's layover in the Station is minimal, so the best way for children to see Santa is with a ticket aboard the train. We hope you'll join us!
