INRD Santa Train to Run This Weekend

The annual Santa Claus train of the Indiana Rail Road will run this weekend, making 12 stops in Indiana and Illinois.

Visitors will be permitted to board the train at 11 of the stops to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. At another stop Santa will instead disembark and receive visitors at a nearby community building.

In a news release, INRD said Santa and his helpers will be portrayed by volunteers of railroad workers and their families.

The event is free, and coats, hats, and gloves will be distributed to help children in need prepare for winter weather.

The INRD Santa train began in 1989 as a volunteer project. It was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and ran in modified form in 2021.

Last year visitors were not permitted aboard the train and Santa and Mrs. Claus greeted the crowd from the back of a caboose.
