There are two days left to ride a real train with Santa Claus at New Hope Valley Railway. We have our final weekend of Santa’s Reindeer Roundup Express rides on Saturday, Dec. 15, and Sunday, Dec. 16.

The trains and rail yard will be festively decorated and holiday scenes will be set up along the tracks. Santa and his elf will be on board to visit with each child and pose for photos.

Passengers ride in covered, open-air train cars. Trains depart at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m. & 3:30 p.m. Select your ride day and time, and purchase tickets on our calendar page.

Attention Dec. 9 Santa’s Reindeer Roundup Ticket Holders

Since Santa’s Reindeer Roundup Express was canceled on Sunday, Dec. 9, because of the snow storm, your ticket costs have automatically been refunded to the credit card you used for the online payment. You may re-purchase tickets for Saturday, Dec. 15, or a new day added Sunday, Dec. 16.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this creates. We are an all-volunteer railway that runs rain or shine and this is the first time in our 30+ year history we’ve canceled an event. Thank you for supporting the New Hope Valley Railway, an Operating Division of the North Carolina Railway Museum, Inc.!
