Just in time for the holidays, Santa’s Paradise Express is pulling in to Strasburg Rail Road Thanksgiving weekend, starting November 26, 2010. Join Santa on his journey to spread the magic of the season to thousands of families who believe. This year, Santa’s Paradise Express will chug along the tracks mid-morning through late afternoons on November 26-28, December 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19th.

The Christmas celebration begins on the platform of the East Strasburg Station as the sounds of the season fill the air. Relax as an authentic vintage steam train, warmed by a potbelly stove, takes its passengers on a 45-minute ride, traveling past more than 1,000 acres of picturesque farmland on its way to Paradise, PA. Santa, carolers and musicians will stroll from car-to-car, greeting and entertaining families.

After the train ride, children are treated to storybook readings of holiday classics at the station. Families can also enjoy the Tinsel Trolley ride, which will operate throughout the event and is included in the ticket price. The Tinsel Trolley is Strasburg’s L.O. & S. self-propelled motor car. The restored 1915 Lancaster, Oxford & Southern Railcar was originally used on a three-foot gauge track in Southern Lancaster County. Finally, as a special treat, children ages 3 to 11 will receive a gift from Santa and his helper.

Santa’s Paradise Express will be at Strasburg Rail Road, Route 741, Strasburg, Pennsylvania, starting Thanksgiving weekend, November 26, 27 and 28, 2010. Also, see Santa December 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, and 19, 2010. Trains start running at 11:00 am each weekend. Tickets are priced at $17 for adults, $10 for children ages 3-11, and $3 for kids 3 and under.
