INRD Sets Santa Train Schedule

The annual Santa Claus trains of the Indiana Rail Road will operate this year to southern Indiana and southeastern Illinois Dec. 2 to 4.

Indiana Rail Road 1It is the 27th year that INRD has offered the train, which delivers hats and coats to children in need.

Children will also be able to board the train and meet Santa Claus at each stop.

Free tickets to see Santa are available on a first-come, first-served basis at each stop before the train’s arrival.

“Attendance for Santa Train has doubled within the last decade — almost 9,400 guests at 12 stops in 2015 alone — and the train has operated up to two hours late as a result,” said INRD spokesman Eric Powell. “We do not want to have little ones waiting in the cold for extended periods of time to see Santa Claus, so we feel a free-ticket system is the best way to keep Santa on time, and to let families know up front if they’ve arrived in time to step aboard the Santa Train.”
