Our popular Santa Express Trains depart Granite State Scenic Railway Station at 1:00pm beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving and operate weekends through mid-December. All Santa Express Trains are approximately one hour and twenty minutes in length (80 minutes) and return to where they started, to Granite State Scenic Railway Station in Lincoln, NH.

We offer Coach Class & First Class seating on all of our Santa Express Trains. The only difference between Coach Class Seating and First Class seating is that First Class seating is at tables, while Coach Class seating is bench-style seating without tables. Otherwise, the entire experience aboard our Santa Express Trains is 100% identical. Everyone on the train will meet Santa & Mrs. Claus, all young children will receive a letter to complete for Santa and every young child will receive a gift from Santa on the train! Everyone will receive a small bottle of chocolate milk and each family will receive a box of Christmas cookies. 

Also, if you’re in need lodging while you’re in the Lincoln-Woodstock area, please click on the Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce for all your lodging needs. Whether you’re looking for a motel, hotel, a condo or a bed & breakfast – they have it all!
