The New Hope Railroad cordially invites you, your family and friends to a very special and unique holiday event.
Welcome the return of the historic #40 steam engine by joining Santa and Mrs. Claus for a ride upon their magical Steam Train adventure through the historic Bucks County countryside. Santa’s Steam Train Ride departs New Hope Station for a round trip to the North Pole.
The journey begins when the Conductor calls “All Aboard”! Whether you’re a new guest or returning for a family tradition, you will experience the sounds and tastes of the holiday season. Sing along with our roaming musicians as they play Christmas carols and you sip warm cocoa and enjoy a freshly baked cookie.
Share your special wishes with Santa as he and Mrs. Claus visit with the children. Each child will receive their own sleigh bell gift from Santa himself. Children and adults alike are encouraged to indulge in the spirit of the season by wearing pajamas and settling in for a relaxing ride with family and friends aboard our festive railway cars adorned with holiday decorations.
This joyous annual event will surely become a cherished holiday tradition for the entire family.
Santa will visit with each family to collect the Christmas wishes of the children. This special moment will be beautifully captured by one of our photographers. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase their own commemorative photo package while aboard the train. All tickets must be purchased online.
*Photo packages are offered for purchase for an additional fee. Fees vary based on the package selected.
