Take a trip back to a simple time along the beautiful Chester Creek in Chester County. The West Chester Railroad runs 90 minute round trips between Market Street in West Chester, Chester County and the village of Glen Mills, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. You will forget that you are only 30 minutes from center city Philadelphia.
SANTA’s EXPRESS: All aboard Santa’s Express! Join Santa for a 75 minute journey on our heated decorated train through the Chester Creek Valley. Santa will be greeting everyone at Market Street Station and then going along for the ride to Glen Mills and return. Santa will be visiting all passengers while on the train. Make sure you bring your holiday lists with you so Santa can check them twice! Passenger’s will also enjoy live entertainment onboard from Greg Wright and friends!
CHRISTMAS TREE TRAIN: West Chester Railroad is again hosting it’s popular Christmas Tree train this holiday season! We have partnered with Wiggins Tree Farm in West Chester, PA. The train will depart Market St station in West Chester, PA promptly at 8:00 AM. Once on board, passengers will enjoy coffee, hot chocolate, and donuts. The train will arrive at Wiggins at approx 8:30 AM where passengers will disembark at the tree farm to go pick and cut down your Christmas tree (hand saws will be supplied). Once you’ve picked that perfect tree, it will be banded up, tagged, and placed on our flat car. At 9:45 AM, passengers will then board the train and be brought back to West Chester where your trees will be offloaded from the train. Don’t miss this new spin on a classic holiday tradition! Trip is approximately 2 hours. Seating is very limited so please order soon!
All trees have the special price of $60 for all Tree Train ticket holders. The price of the tree is not included in the price of your ticket.
NOTE: Santa will NOT be on board this train. He is only on board our “Santa’s Express” trains. Christmas Trees are purchased separately and are priced at the discretion of Wiggin’s Tree Farm. Wiggins accepts only CASH or CHECK for tree purchases. West Chester Railroad will have help on hand to load trees on to your car, but it is your responsibility to make sure trees are secured for transportation.
