This Christmas, for the first time ever, the South Devon Railway is thrilled to bring to you THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride.  A truly magical experience for the whole family.

The most iconic feature of The Polar Express is its sleek black steam engine. It’s even inscribed with the ‘1225’ signage to identify it as Santa’s own train. Your children will gasp with amazement as the Polar Express train pulls into the station. Billowing steam all the way, your authentic steam train ride will last around an hour.

Even the tickets feature the beautiful train. Whether Grandad is a steam train fan, Dad wants to ride the footplate or the children love trains, there’s something for everyone. Make sure the whole family has their Polar Express tickets!

Throughout your train ride you’ll be entertained, meeting the Conductor and his crew. All the while the train steams towards the North Pole. ! Here you’ll meet Santa and one of his friendly elves. He will climb on board the train to meet you all. The Conductor will even clip your Polar Express tickets just like in the film.
