Autumn on the Wilmington & Western
SANTA CLAUS EXPRESS

Why stand in line at the mall and wait to see Santa, when you can ride our train and have Santa come to you? The Jolly Old Elf himself rides the train and greets everyone on board, and gives all children a chocolate treat. Be sure to bring your camera and have Santa pose for pictures with your child during this 1½-hour round-trip to Ashland.

Our volunteer shop crew hopes to have one of our steam locomotives repaired in time to pull Santa's train. If it is not ready in time, this event will be powered by one of our historic diesel locomotives. We will update this page as we get closer to the event, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
