Display buildings and museum grounds will not be open for this event. Parking is free. Plan to arrive no earlier than 30 minutes before your scheduled trip.

For those of you who have visited us in previous years, note that the format of the event is improved for 2015. The train ride is longer, and will leave from the depot and return to the depot, rather than the diner. Santa will ride the train with you. Hot chocolate and cookies will be available at the depot and/or the diner.
