- : Children - Dec 11 thru Dec 19 - Boothbay - North Pole Express - Boothbay Railway Village - Upcoming Knox County Maine Events
On Saturdays and Sundays, December 11, 12, 18, and 19, the Boothbay Railway Village will be running the "North Pole Express!" Departures will be at 11 a.m., 11:45 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:15 p.m. and 2 p.m. each day. Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended to avoid disappointment or long waits. Start your trip inside historic 1912 Freeport Station (the main train station at the Museum) by writing your letter to Santa by warmth of the wood stove. Train conductors will call "All Aboard" and everyone, young and old, will board the train to the North Pole. Settle into a comfortable seat in the steam-heated passenger car as you enjoy the winter wonderland of forest frosted with white snow (weather permitting, of course.) If you would like, upgrade your ticket to First Class and enjoy the Victorian splendor of the newly restored Franklin and Megantic Coach No. 2. The coach was originally built in 1903 and it embodies the typical travel of the era with its plush walkover seats and mahogany interior. The train will carry you through the Village and arrive at the North Pole (Thorndike Station) where a special guest wearing a red suit with a jolly belly will jump aboard to greet you! Yes, Santa himself will attend! After meeting the "big guy" in person the train will whisk you back to the station where you will be invited to join us in the 1847 Boothbay Town Hall for more festivities. Inside guests will be treated to a special story book reading while hot chocolate and homemade cookies are served. Everyone will enjoy the G-scale model of the Museum's own locomotive and a holiday themed layout under the VillageÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Christmas tree. Children will also be invited to make a vintage-inspired holiday ornament to take home. Tickets are available in advance or at the door. Standard tickets are $15, First Class $20 for attendees three years and older. Museum members receive a $4 discount per ticket only on Standard tickets, sorry no discounts on First Class. When ordering your tickets online remember that children under three years old do not need a ticket. Online sales will start in October. Event is on the weekends of Dec. 11 and 12 and Dec. 18 and 19.
