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 1:30pm and includes round trip travel to Old Town Manassas returning to King Street Station at 4:30pm.

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 1 hour and 15 minutes. During that time we will be serving hot chocolate, cookies, and water. Hooray for Books will have a store time in the station and Santa will hold a Q&A session on the station platform.
