Join us for a safe, socially distanced, family excursion as you board our train for a 1-hour journey through the lower CT River Valley. Navigate through a whimsical evergreen and candy cane forest as you walk to your boarding location. Once aboard the train, kids will don their festive Reindeer Antlers (a gift from Rudolph himself!), piece together a fun Christmas craft ornament, and write a letter to Santa to be stamped and mailed at The Reindeer Express Post Office before departing Essex Station at the conclusion of each visit. Your table will be set with a continental family style breakfast or lunch platter while coffee, bottled juice and cocoa will be served to order. And don’t you worry….. even though Santa needs to keep himself at a safe social distance in order to ensure safe travels to so many homes  on Christmas Eve, we are sure he will be taking a break from his workshop, and making a grand appearance outside to say hello to all of his little friends somewhere along the line. Don’t forget to stop by Mrs. Claus’s bakeshop before you leave, say hello, and get a cookie for your ride home and take a memorable photo by Santa’s sleigh !
