Santa Express Trains

Santa Express Trains

Hobo Railroad - Lincoln, NH

Our popular Santa Express Trains depart Hobo Junction Station at 1:00pm beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 26th, and operate weekends through Sunday, December 19th (see our full schedule below).

We offer Coach Class & First Class seating on all of our Santa Express Trains. The only difference between Coach Class 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 that they can complete for Santa and every young child will receive a gift from Santa on the train!

Please note that compliance with current TSA (Transportation Safety Administration) COVID-19 Guidelines will be followed. As such, our Santa Express Trains will be limited to 50% capacity and advanced reservations will be required. All passengers (ages 5 and up) will be required to wear face masks while in the Station and on the Train unless you’re consuming something to eat or drink. As a result, you’re welcome to bring snacks and something to drink (non-alcoholic please) to enjoy on the train – all we ask is that whatever you bring on the train, you please bring off the train at the conclusion of the ride.  We look forward to seeing you on this year’s Santa Express Train – Ho, Ho, Ho!!!

By the way, if you’re in need lodging, 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!
