North Pole Express

Bring everyone out to take a magical little quarter-scale train ride around our track decorated with sparkling lights and unique holiday decorations.  Warm up inside our spruced up museum between rides with hot chocolate, fresh-popped popcorn, and other goodies.   

See faces light up as they watch holiday-themed toy/model train layouts go 'round and 'round.  Take a stroll to see many beautifully decorated Christmas trees.  And do some shopping in our railroad gift shop stocked with items for big and little train enthusiasts.  This is our most popular, feel-good-all-over, family event.

Do you have relatives/friends visiting for Christmas?  Treat them to a very special night!  Fun and very affordable!

Free admission and a train ride for active duty military personnel and their immediate family upon presentation of valid D.O.D. identification, as our "Thank You" for serving our country.

Remember that our coaches are open sided, so please dress warmly with hats, scarves, and mittens.

We're easy to find - at the northeast corner of I-75 Exit #161 (County Rd. 99) at the north end of Findlay.

We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1998 for the preservation, promotion, and education of railroad history.
