Step back in time as the Historic Jefferson Railway, an antique narrow-gauge train, embraces an old-fashioned Christmas in the country. Enjoy the lighted vignettes and hear the story of “Celebrations Around the World” aboard the train that circles the Piney Woods along the Big Cypress Bayou. The decorated historic railroad depot captures the holiday spirit complete with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
The Christmas Train opens on November 28, 2013 and runs Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through December 22, 2013. (Closed December 1st).
Also, ring in the New Year with the Rail of Lights New Year’s Train running December 26-29 and the 31st. This ride will feature the dropping of the ball in Times Square, complete with beverages, noisemakers and a fantastic fireworks show on every train ride.
