The magic of Christmas Eve is recreated on this special train ride. Visitors can wear their pajamas and enjoy cookies and milk as they travel down the tracks. On board, a reader dressed in a Victorian nightshirt and cap will read aloud the classic poem The Night Before Christmas. At the station, visitors can enjoy storybook readings of holiday classics aboard a heated stationary Caboose and a ride aboard the Tinsel Trolley, a self-propelled motorcar. Train departs at 6:30 pm on Thursdays and 7:00 pm Fridays. The Strasburg Rail Road will donate $5 from every adult ticket sold to the Clinic for Special Children located in Strasburg, PA. Passengers may bring old-fashioned storybooks to benefit the Clinic for Special Children.
