Our longest-running annual event, the Santa Train, has been a long-standing family tradition for over four Decades — 40+ years of family fun! These ever-popular trains begin Saturday, Nov. 25 and continue each Saturday and Sunday through Saturday, Dec. 23rd.

Two trains depart the Nelsonville Depot traveling round-trip to East Logan and back each Saturday and Sunday during that time at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. We will also have an evening departure time of 6 p.m. on Nov. 25 the 1st, 2nd, 8th, 9th , 15th, 16th, 22nd 23rd of December.

Each train features the same theme – Santa gets on board the train and visits with each child as the train traverses the historic (and with any luck, snow-covered) Hocking River Valley.

Each coach is heated and decorated inside and out. Christmas music plays throughout the train over the audio system, and after Santa’s visit, each child receives a special candy cane treat. Make sure your child or grandchild brings his or her Christmas wishlist to share with Santa!

These are incredibly popular and do tend to sell out, so order as early as possible to secure your spot!
