As the train departs, Santa begins his journey through the train of heated coaches and visits with each child, hearing their special requests before the Big Day. Each child also gets to enjoy a candy treat after Santa's visit. Trains operate each Saturday and Sunday between November 26th and December 18th at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and an evening departure on Saturday December 3rd and 10th at 6:00 p.m." Click here for more information.
