Santa's Steam Train Ride
The New Hope Railroad warmly invites you, your loved ones, and your friends to an extraordinary holiday event. Come and celebrate the return of the iconic #40 steam engine as you join Santa and Mrs. Claus on a magical adventure aboard the Steam Train, traversing the historic countryside of Bucks County. This enchanting Santa’s Steam Train Ride departs from New Hope Station, taking you on a round trip to the “North Pole.” The journey commences with the Conductor’s call of “All Aboard”! Whether you’re a first-time visitor or returning to uphold a family tradition, you’ll be immersed in the sounds and flavors of the holiday season. Sing along with our wandering musicians as they play Christmas carols while you savor warm cocoa and indulge in freshly baked cookies. Interact with Santa and Mrs. Claus as they spend time with the children, listening to their special wishes. Each child will receive a unique gift of a sleigh bell from Santa himself. Both children and adults are encouraged to embrace the spirit of the season by wearing pajamas and enjoying a relaxing ride with loved ones on our festively adorned railway cars, complete with holiday decorations. This delightful annual event is sure to become a beloved holiday tradition for the entire family. Before concluding your experience at the railroad, take a leisurely stroll through our beautifully decorated railway station. Both our restored 1891 Freight House Gift Shop and the Christmas Gift Shop, located within the historic 1891 Victorian-style Passenger Station, will be open for business. They offer the perfect opportunity to find any last-minute decorations or gifts for those special individuals on your list. The entire team at the New Hope Railroad wishes you a joyful and healthy holiday season, and we eagerly await your presence aboard our train.*Photo packages are available for purchase at an additional fee.
