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?
