Northern Lights Limited & Santa Express
Experience the magic of Christmas in New England

Over the past few months the Railroad Museum of New England has reflected on what the holidays truly mean to our organization. Here is what we came up with: 

We see ourselves within the context of a quintessential New England town which embraces the spirit and magic of the season.  For us,  Christmas is about community, not commercialization. 

When you walk into our Thomaston Station, where thousands of joyful holiday homecomings once occurred, the beautiful decorations you see were hung by our dedicated volunteers - your neighbors

Outside, the train sits patiently at the platform, decorated to represent the many colors of the northern lights, waiting to capture the imagination. The coaches, almost one hundred years old, are safely preserved so that generations to come will understand the journey was once as important as the destination. 

Of course, the true magic occurs when Santa greets his waiting passengers. Eager to share their Christmas wishes, he sits with each boy and girl, making them truly "believe." 

So won't you join us? 

Ideal for the littlest of Santa's helpers, the one-hour ride includes a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. The train departs our Thomaston Station @ 2pm Saturdays and Sundays beginning November 29th.

Adults: $18.00
Children (3-12): $16.00
Under 3: Free

Thousands of lights shatter the winter darkness and guide Santa and his sleigh to Thomaston where hundreds of boys and girls eagerly await his arrival. His elves are on hand to provide special gifts to those on the "nice" list and the train makes a special stop at Santa's Train Workshop to pick up Mrs. Claus. Trains depart our Thomaston Station @ 5pm & 7pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning November 27th. 

Adults: $25.00
Children (3-12): $25.00
