Catskill Mountain Railroad’s Polar Express now running weekends through the holiday

The Catskill Mountain Railroad presents its enchanting Polar Express program Fridays through Sundays between November 15 and December 28, with some midweek days as well closer to Christmas. Set to the sounds of the motion picture, passengers will relive the classic story as they are whisked away on the Polar Express for a magical trip to the North Pole. Once on board, the conductors will work their way through the coach and punch your golden ticket as you’re served hot chocolate and a cookie. Passengers will read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. Passengers should arrive approximately 45 minutes before their departure time and check in at the Will Call desk located in the Polar Express tent. Boarding starts approximately 20 minutes before departure time. Peak-hour tickets cost $50 for adults and $40 for children, off-peak tickets $41 and $32.
