December 1 & 2 12pm-5pm
Celebrate the Christmas season with the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum at the 4th Annual Holiday Train. This event is tailored for young children and family fun. For only $5 per rider, you can take a short ride on one of our restored cabooses. These cabooses are heated, comfortable, and fully operational. You'll be able to experience the same ride as railroaders of a bygone era did when cabooses were on every freight train across America. The ride lasts about 10 minutes, then it's off to the dining car. Sit down and enjoy hot coco and cookies (included with your ticket price) in our 1927 Nickel Plate Road Diner. Experience what it was like when passenger train travel was more common place and eating in the diner was a luxury of the journey. After you've enjoyed the diner, Santa Claus will be waiting to meet you in the Monument Station at the museum. Jolly Old Saint Nick will be happy to offer his lap for children's gift requests and get pictures with the family. Also in the Monument Station, our gift shop will be open for Holiday shopping. We have many train related items to choose from including books, DVDs, apparel, toys, memorabilia, collectibles, and much more.
The Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The museum operates with an all-volunteer staff and is funded by donations, admissions, and fund-raising events such as the Holiday Train. All proceeds from this event go directly to support the museum.
Due to the historical nature of the equipment used for this event, cabooses and dining car are not handicap accessible.
No reservations required, tickets available at the event.
