Railroad Museum of New England Northern Lights Limited
November 23 - December 23
The Northern Lights Limited departs under the cover of nightfall in train cars illuminated in a soft, cheerful glow. After departing our Thomaston station, the next stop is the North Pole! After a stop to pick up Mr. & Mrs. Claus, children will meet and choose a gift from their toy bags.
Both our Santa Express and Northern Lights Limited offer a very special 1st class service. With the purchase of 1st class tickets, you will get a top-notch experience. Currently, in service, we have our fully restored, 1880s Rutland 260 first class car. Also included in this service is hot chocolate, cookies, a souvenir mug, and a goodie bag full of surprises.
