The Polar Express

Normally I am totally against premature holiday-ism   By that I mean I like for holidays to have their full term of excitement without the next one (or two) stealing their thunder.

But...I'm going to make an exception...because...

I'm so excited to have the Polar Express come to the Piney Woods!

From the folks at the Polar Express:

All Aboard! The Polar Express comes to life this holiday season as the Texas State Railroad rolls out of the station bound for the "North Pole!" Come early and climb aboard with your family to cozy-up and enjoy our festively-decorated vintage train cars. Dancing chefs deliver hot chocolate and a cookie to each guest to savor while music from the Polar Express movie plays en route to the North Pole. Make sure to have your tickets handy, because your conductor will be by shortly to punch each child's ticket. Before arriving at the North Pole, the iconic book, The Polar Express is read as your Chef turns the pages to share the beautiful illustrations in the original book. With the station far away, The Polar Express magically arrives at the outskirts of Santa's North Pole village, where Santa Claus himself and his elves joyously welcome the train! As you stay comfortably settled and warm in your seat, Santa and his helper elf board the train! During the return trip, Santa will greet each child with his signature holiday spirit and the first gift of Christmas: a bell cut from his sleigh. It is said that only children and those who still believe can actually hear the bell ring. Join in the singing as your Chef or Conductor lead Christmas caroling on the 30-minute return trip. For those wanting the magic to last or to do a little Christmas shopping, visit our gift shop in the station for special Polar Express gifts and merchandise. Oh, one last thing, children are encouraged to wear their PJ's; adults who still believe have been known to wear them, too! So, are you coming? All Aboard!
All Aboard the Polar Express is coming to the Texas State Railroad, visit or call 877-726-7245 to climb aboard.
(F.Y.I.  Right now on the Texas State Railroad website, they are having a B1G1 free sale on their regular tickets until November 15th.  See website for more details and conditions.)

What a cool way to start off the Christmas season!

Here's a little video of what you can expect:

I was provided tickets as compensation for this blog post.  Thank you US Family Guide.  


  1. It says the BOGO are only until Nov 15 and don't include Polar Express. :(

  2. Thank you Ms. Dee D for the clarification. Yes, the BOGO is for their regular tickets and must be purchased over the phone. The website has the details. Thanks so much for pointing that out.
