The New Hope Railroad cordially invites you, your family, and your friends to a very special and unique holiday event. Welcome the return of the historic #40 steam engine by joining Santa, Mrs. Claus for a ride upon their magical Steam Train adventure through the historic Bucks County countryside. This Santa’s North Pole Premium Train departs New Hope Station for a round trip to the North Pole.
The journey begins when the Conductor calls “All Aboard”! Whether you’re a new guest or returning for a family tradition, you will experience the sounds and tastes of the holiday season. Sing along with our roaming musicians as they play Christmas carols and you sip warm cocoa and enjoy a freshly baked cookie.
Share your special wishes with Santa as he and Mrs. Claus visit with the children. Each child will receive their own sleigh bell gift from Santa himself. Children and adults alike are encouraged to indulge in the spirit of the season by wearing pajamas and settling in for a relaxing ride with family and friends aboard our festive railway cars adorned with holiday decorations.
This joyous annual event will surely become a cherished holiday tradition for the entire family.
Before departing from the railroad, be sure to take some time and stroll through our beautifully decorated railroad station. Both our restored 1891 Freight House Gift Shop and our Christmas Gift Shop located within the historic 1891 Victorian-style Passenger Station will be open for business, the perfect place to shop for any last-minute décor or gifts for those special people on your list.
From all of us at the New Hope Railroad, we wish you a very happy and healthy holiday season, and we hope to soon see you aboard.

*Our nearly 100-year-old steam locomotive #40 has been assigned as motive power on this train for many years and rarely develops mechanical problems; however, if the steam locomotive isn’t available to provide motive power for the train, one of our vintage diesel locomotives will be assigned. If Santa’s North Pole Premium Train is diesel-powered, the railroad will not offer refunds. However, a voucher will be provided to customers with affected reservations. The voucher will offer you and your family a traditional steam train ride behind our steam locomotive during the next operating season.
