Ride a Vintage Train to Visit Santa Claus - All Aboard The Snow Clipper for the First Gift Express


*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 12/19/2021
Take a ride in a vintage train through the historic railyard to visit Santa. That portly gent from the North Pole will once again pay a visit to the Danbury Railway Museum and you can take a ride in a vintage train through the historic railyard to visit him. This is a major fund-raising event for the museum and will take place on Saturdays and Sundays, December 4-5, 11-12, and 18-19. The museum will be open each day from noon to 7:00 PM. Reservations are necessary for this very popular event. When guests arrive and check-in at the restored 1903 train station, kids and parents will be able to enjoy the festively decorated museum interior. This includes a Letters to Santa coloring station, operating model railroads, and many interesting exhibits and artifact displays.

After a short train ride in a restored 1953 Rail Diesel Car through historic Danbury railyard, you'll be escorted back to the station for a meet and greet with Santa and Mrs. Claus, where the big man himself will give out the first gifts of Christmas.  New this year:  parents will bring a pre-wrapped present (or select one from our online menu -- see Web site for details), and Old St. Nick will give your little ones their unique present!

Trains will depart at 12:30, 2:00, 3:30, 5:00, and 6:30.  The 5:00 and 6:30 trains will run in darkness which will be ideal for enjoying the lighted railyard.

Afterwards, you are free to enjoy a walk through the railyard with a cup of hot chocolate - don't forget the marshmallows!

Tickets are $20 for ages 2 and up.  When making your reservation, use Offer Code “KOA21” to save $2.00 per paid admission.
