The Santa Train is coming to town

The Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City is hosting Santa Train rides, a holiday treat for the whole family. The event features a ride aboard historic Virginia & Truckee Railroad equipment and a visit with Santa Claus.

The train runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at 2180 S. Carson St.

The museum offers free admission to the exhibit gallery with purchase of a Santa Train ticket and encourages visitors to enjoy the exhibits and magnificently restored locomotives and rolling stock after riding the Santa Train.

The Santa Train has been an annual holiday event at the museum for the last 22 years thanks to the help of Nevada State Railroad Museum volunteers and the Friends of the Nevada State Railroad Museum.

While taking part in the holiday celebration at the Museum, visitors can shop at the museum store which is stocked with railroad books, clothing, toys and many unique specialty items.

The Warren Engine Company #1 will have hot chocolate, food and refreshments available.

Santa Train rides are offered at only $2 per seat. For more information call 687-6953 or visit the Web site at
