Last weekend of Santa Train at Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City

This year’s last chance to see Santa aboard a historic steam car is this weekend.

The Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City will conclude its 33rd year of Santa Train this weekend.

The Santa Trains will be running Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Children and their families ride in rail cars pulled behind the historic Virginia and Truckee Railroad No. 25 steam locomotive. On their way around the museum's track, Santa hands out candy canes to all the riders and listens to children's Christmas wishes.

Inside the Wabuska Depot, youngsters can write letters to Santa or color pictures. Christmas music will be playing and parents can participate in a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and individuals. Tickets are $5 for all riders. Children 2 and younger who sit in an adult's lap are free.

Advance tickets are available online at http://bit.ly/2h9FoUV.

The Santa Trains are run in partnership with the Friends of the Nevada State Railroad Museum, located at 2180 S. Carson St.
