Certain dates and car types will sell quickly and you'll want to be first to book! Join us for a truly magical recreation of the classic holiday story about a child’s Christmas Eve journey aboard a vintage steam train as it departs our station in Durango and sets off for the North Pole to pick up Santa. Once onboard, the chefs will serve hot chocolate and a sweet treat and you will enjoy a reading of The Polar Express by your conductor, Once at the North Pole you will see an incredible light show set to holiday music. On the return trip to Durango, Santa will visit each coach and hand out the first gift of Christmas.

First told in the award-winning book by Chris Van Allsburg, this is the story of a child’s Christmas Eve journey. It was adapted to the big screen in 2003.
