New Hope & Ivyland Railroad

Wear your pajamas and climb aboard the North Pole Express at New Hope and Ivyland Railroad. Children can enjoy riding the rails pulled by a vintage diesel locomotive with a visit  from Santa at the end of the journey.

Sip hot cocoa and eat some cookies in a heated passenger car. Christmas carols fill the air as local musicians keep train riders entertained with their festive sounds. Letters to Santa can be dropped in a special red mailbox. Trains depart promptly at their scheduled time. The ride is typically 60 minutes in duration. Many trains fill up quickly so reservations and ticket purchases are a must.
