Santa Express at Scenic Blue Ridge Railway
Similar to the popular holiday film, The Polar Express, The Santa Express takes families on a scenic ride through the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The ride starts with a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus in their Christmas caboose before the train embarks on a one-hour train ride where organizers read a Christmas story, sing songs, and more.
Train rides are available from Nov 27 - Dec 23. Check website for times, dates, pricing and updates.
Due to COVID, Santa and Mrs. Claus will not be on the train this year, but are scheduled to be open for visits and photos in their Christmas caboose at the Depot. This year children will not be allowed to sit with or hug Santa and Mrs. Claus.
