“Just a reminder to everyone that the Polar Express Train will be operating during this holiday season. Please be aware that there will be heavier train traffic through town.
Nice to see that this locomotive is still out and running. It was built in 1957 and 1 of 60 that were built.
We are lucky to have such a big piece of railroad history operating in our town.”-Wareham Police Department.
From the Polar Express Train’s website:
“Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the classic story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ for a 1 to 1 ½ hour trip to meet Santa.
Santa and his elves board the train at the North Pole to greet passengers and each guest is given the first gift of Christmas. Please be sure to have your camera ready to capture this moment! During the trip, characters on each car lead fantastic onboard entertainment – just like in the film! Each child will take home a keepsake sleigh bell and souvenir golden ticket in addition to the wonderful memories made on this magical trip. Delicious hot chocolate and Walker’s Shortbread cookies – the “Official Onboard Treat” of THE POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride, which are individually wrapped in sealed packages, will be served to each passenger during the run.
We recommend wearing your Christmas jammies for even more fun!”
