Ride a Vintage Train to Visit Santa Claus

Frosty RDC

That portly gent from the North Pole will once again pay a visit to the
Danbury Railway Museum and you can take a ride in a vintage train through
the historic railyard to visit him. The event will take place on Saturdays
and Sundays, December 6, 12-13, and 19-20. Trains will depart every
half-hour from 12:00pm to 3:30pm on Saturdays; 12:30pm to 3:30pm on
Sundays. Admission is $10.00 for ages 2 and up (under 2, free). Each
child will receive a small gift from Santa. Based on the popularity of
this event the past couple of years, reservations are suggested. Due to
its popularity last year, on both Saturday evenings this year, a special
night-time ride at 4:30pm is being scheduled. Take an evening ride through
the lighted railyard!

The short train ride in a fully-restored 1953 New Haven Railroad Rail
Diesel Car (RDC) will take you through the railyard, past the only powered
turntable in Connecticut — listed on the National Historic Register — and
over 70 vintage railroad cars, locomotives and many unique pieces of
railroad history. The train ride will terminate at Santa’s own private
railcar where you’ll be greeted by Mrs. Claus and Santa’s helpers in

Of course, the exhibits and multiple operating model train layouts inside
the restored 1903 Danbury station will also be open as will the be the
well-stocked gift shop. Also inside the station, you’ll find free hot
chocolate, temporary tattoos and other activities for the little ones.

The Danbury Railway Museum is a non-profit organization, staffed solely by
volunteers, and is dedicated to the preservation of, and education about,
railroad history. The museum is located in the restored 1903 Danbury
Station and rail yard at 120 White Street, Danbury, CT. For further
