Past Santa Train Details:

How about a train ride with Santa and Mrs. Claus this year to make your Christmas extra special?!

Tickets sold exclusively at Whistle Stop Hobbies.
(*Note that tickets must be purchased in person)

All trains depart promptly from King Street Station in Alexandria at 1:25pm and includes round trip travel to Old Town Manassas returning to King Street Station at 3:30pm.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on board to greet children with a special holiday treat!

When we arrive in Manassas we leave the train for approximately 30 minutes. During that time we will be serving Hot Chocolate and Cookies. Hooray for Books will have a store time in the station and Santa will hold a Q&A session on the station platform.
