Passengers not only get to meet Santa and pose for photos with him during their train ride on New Hope Valley Railway’s Holiday Santa Trains, they can also help him find his reindeer. Before your ride, drop by the reindeer stables in the rail yard to see how you can help Santa locate Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph.

Families are also encouraged to visit the photo opportunity that will be set up in front of the Post Office train car in the rail yard either before or after their train ride.

Our passenger cars are covered, open-air train cars, so visitors are encouraged to dress for the weather.

Trains depart on December 2, 3, 9 & 10 at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m. & 3:30 p.m. Holiday Santa Trains can sell out, so it’s recommended to buy tickets early online.
